A Keegan PLAY-RAH-KA Production

** U.S. Premiere ** You can’t trust the fairy-folk. They stole the baby and left the Ice Child in its place. The Ice Child is not like other children. He’s lost in a world that doesn’t understand and doesn’t welcome him. The Ice Child can’t be hugged, can’t be cuddled. He’ll melt. How do you love a child that can’t be touched? And what is love anyway – when you come right down to it? This is a tale of growing up different. It’s a fairy story – a story told by the fairies about people. And it’s a love story – a story about love. Recommended for young people age 8 and up.


DC Theatre Scene Review

“I loved The Ice Child—an old-school-esque “once upon a time” fairy tale about very real-world, right now issues that treats its tiny audience like intelligent, independent beings capable of great empathy. And imagination.”
