Ice House

I recently had the pleasure of directing Ice House in Edinburgh and Aberdeen as a Christmas show for the Lemon Tree. The remarkable Ian Cameron directed the first few weeks of the show, and then I came in to follow on from his work when he went off to China with Catherine Wheel’s White. It was an absolute delight to work with Ian on the handover days. It was so nice to speak with one voice, together, in the creation of something special.
I’m pleased to say that the show has been very well received and that it’s making lots of families and groups happy.
The run finishes on the 22nd of December.

Freshly Squeezed Productions in partnership with Ailie Cohen and Sarah Corbett present Ice House

Clip and Clop are Christmas decorations. They live on the Christmas Tree, guarding all the other Christmas decorations, and they like it very much.

Until one day a special card arrives with a picture on it. A picture of an Ice House…

Join Clip and Clop as they journey to the far far north and explore a magical, strange new world where nothing is as it seems. They discover that sometimes a journey into the unknown, helps you find your way home…
