Final performance of The Ice Maiden!

We’ve really enjoyed the past coThe Ice Maidenuple of days at Theatrefest, we’ve seen some great shows and got a lot of good feedback.

A lot of people seemed to have really enjoyed the show and said lovely things about it like:

“Throughout the performance SourDough use many different types of media to tell their tale to great effect”

“This production is visual, vivid and emotive, but beyond all full of imagination”

“The Ice Maiden is quite beautiful”

But don’t worry if you’ve missed it because you can see The Ice Maiden tonight at 7:30 at the Baptist Hall.

So come along for your final chance to enjoy our multi-media storytelling!

The Ice Maiden – Exeter Ignite and Barnstaple Fringe TheatreFest 2013


“She, the murderess, the destroyer, is half a child of air and half the powerful ruler of the streams”

SourDough Theatre present Hans Christian Andersen’s The Ice Maiden, the dark tale of a young man called Rudy, whose life is beset by an evil being – the queen of the glaciers, a force of icy rage from the natural world, the titular Ice Maiden. After escaping her when he was young he must now do everything in his power to resist the lure of the Ice Maiden and escape her frosty grasps.

Working from Andersen’s original text, SourDough have devised their own version, merging the old story with their new interpretation. Here they unveil their production of this morbid fairy-tale, exploring a world that is both enticing and dangerous. The story is illustrated with many of the company’s favourite devices; shadows, projection, puppetry and live music.

We will be performing at two different festivals, with a total of five performances throughout June:
