A Hundred Words for Snow


“it’s a bit weird to be sitting in the Arctic Circle chatting to a fit boy with your Dad’s ashes in your backpack”

A Hundred Words for Snow is about being an explorer in a melting world. It’s a coming of age story. With polar bears.

The show has been developed with the support of the Peggy Ramsey Foundation and Arts Council England.

In February 2019, ‘A Hundred Words for Snow’ toured to Warwick Arts Centre, The Spring Havant, Yvonne Arnaud Guildford, Riverfront Newport, Jubilee Hall Aldebrugh and The Garage Norwich, before culminating in a month-long run at Trafalgar Studios.
