The Ice Child
By Lisa Hodsoll, Rick Hammerly & Hunter Styles
Directed by Hunter Styles
Produced by Factory 449
Featuring Sara Barker, Karin Rosnizeck, David Landstrom and Dexter Hamlett.
Urban legend gets a shot of Edgar Allan Poe and a dash of contemporary horror in Factory 449’s world premiere of The Ice Child. Catherine wakes to find herself imprisoned in a coffin-size freezer chest. To discover how she got there and whether she can talk her way to freedom, she must quickly decide which of her captors to trust. Outside her makeshift prison, a struggle soon arises over Catherine’s treatment that will decide the fate of victims and villains alike. Told through a heart-pounding mash-up of film, live performance and visual art, The Ice Child is a ticking time bomb of a show.
