“Tatty Hennessy’s play about a young woman who wants to take the ashes of her dead father to the North Pole won the Origins Award for outstanding work at VAULT Festival last year. Lucy Jane Atkinson directs a story of melting polar ice caps, grief and a woman going where few women have been before.”

“It’s a bit weird to be sitting in 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 he needs her help 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.

Critic reviews

Tatty Hennessy’s warm, witty and wonderful one-woman play

· The Stage

A Hundred Words For Snow is a brilliant bit of writing performed to perfection

· London City Nights

Things that seem at first like well-worn shorthand, like a surprise sexual encounter in a foreign country, blossom under Hennessy’s detailed eye and in Barnett’s sensitive performance into a tightly woven web of thoughts, of feelings, of images, of fears


A riveting Peter Pan for our times: anxious, damaged – and desperately in search of a fast-melting Neverland

· WhatsOnStage

A Hundred Words For Snow is a love letter to the theatre, to explorers and, of course, to the North Pole
