The Snow Beast
Scratchworks Theatre Company
In association with The Barbican Theatre
Written by Jack Dean and devised by the company
In the snowy town of Seldomberg test tubes bubble, experiments explode and new inventions whirr at the annual science fair. With nothing but her mother’s old research book, her owl assistant Maude and her sense of adventure to help her, Faina sets off on an action packed exploration, encountering extraordinary spectacles and mountainous obstacles as they battle through the wild, wintry wilderness in search of the truth. Does The Snow Beast really exist? Can we separate stories from fact, or do they whirl together like snowflakes in a blizzard?
The Snow Beast is a new collaboration between critically acclaimed theatre company Scratchworks and award-winning writer Jack Dean, in association with The Barbican Theatre, Plymouth. This brand new show will be a captivating collision of storytelling, an original score and live science experiments that will inspire young audiences to engage with the beauty of the unknown and the magic of the everyday.
There will also be a relaxed matinee performance, open to everyone and suitable for individuals with Autistic Spectrum Conditions.
