The Snow Queen

Touring 20 April - 2 June 2013

Trestle is delighted to have been awarded Arts Council ‘Grants for the Arts’ Funding to tour The Snow Queen across the UK in 2013.

Following a successful Summer 2012 run in India, where the show performed to over 3,500 people, we are proud to announce that this beautiful Indian retelling of the Hans Christian Andersen story shall journey around the UK in April to June this year.

Trestle’s Artistic Director, Emily Gray says “This is a great opportunity to take a very special piece of theatre for all ages to audiences across the country. The Snow Queen was dreamed up by an Indian writer, created in London, taken to India and now it will tour England; have a look at the colourful trailer to get a flavour of the show!”

Based on the story by Hans Christian Andersen, this telling was developed by Indian writer, Anupama Chandreshekar, supported by the British Council through Connections through Culture UK-India.

After a freak snowstorm on the southern tip of India, Kumar disappears. Gowri, his best friend, discovers that he has been captured by the formidable Snow Queen, and embarks on a journey across the length and breadth of the continent to save him. From the burning heat of southern India, through lush backwaters, glitzy Bollywood and desolate bandit country, our brave heroine strives to bring the warmth of friendship to the icy north.

‘Brilliant! Fantastic! Very fun!’ – audience comment, 2012 tour
