A new version of one of the oldest, best loved fairytales of all time. When a rich man s wife dies, his daughter Ella mourns her beloved mother with a grief as deep as the snow on her grave. Before the spring sun has time to melt it, her father takes a second wife and their peaceful life is taken over by a host of new and unpleasant relations. Her only friends are the woodland birds who roost in the tree that grows over the grave, but they are no ordinary birds... With their quirky visual style, crystal-clear storytelling, original live music and pitch-perfect ensemble acting, director Sally Cookson and team bring this classic tale of fortunes reversed startlingly and imaginatively to life. Age recommendation 6+Performers Craig Edwards, Brian Hargreaves, Alex Heane, Joey Hickman, Isabella Marshall, Dorian Simpson, Lucy Tuck.
