  • Moose of Fire Productions - 'A Hundred Words For Snow'.

A Hundred Words for Snow by Tatty Hennessy. Directed by Ellie Swann.

It’s a bit weird to be sitting at the Arctic Circle chatting to a fit boy with your dad’s ashes in your backpack.’

Rory’s dad was an explorer. Well, not literally. Literally, he was a geography teacher. But inside, she knows, he was Bear Grylls. And when he dies suddenly in an accident, Rory knows she needs to make one last expedition.

With a plastic compass and Dad’s ashes at her side, Rory sets off in the footsteps of all the dead beardy explorers before her, to get Dad to the North Pole. Before Mum finds out they’ve gone.

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

This is a touring performance by Dunedin based theatrical productions - Moose of Fire.
