The Snow Queen
Author(s): Paul Boyd
Company: Lyric Theatre
Gerda works in her grandmother’s busy flower shop in the centre of town where, for as long as she can remember, the roses are delivered every morning by her friend, one of the town’s young men, Kai.
One night, an unexpected cold wind blows across the land, and when the windows of the town begin to freeze over grandmother fears the worst—the Snow Queen has returned.
When Kai doesn’t arrive at the shop next morning, Gerda becomes worried for her friend, and so she sets off on a long journey to find him, travelling across distant lands in search of a palace that legend says sits amongst the snowy, frozen peaks of Finnmark.
