When you enter The Pit, it’s as though winter has arrived, with woods covered in sparkly snow. A child runs outside to discover it all but soon feels lonely. Drawn by a sound, the child finds a sleeping mouse buried under the soft white flakes. Together they explore, sliding, tumbling and laughing, keeping each other safe and warm.
Snow Mouse combines an endearing puppet, one performer, lots of giggles and a tactile set perfect for audiences to come and sit close to the action. Bath-based the egg and Bristol’s Travelling Light Theatre Company make outstanding theatre for children, engaging with their emotions and firing their imaginations.
