Co-writer and Performer (Mrs Winter) | Punchdrunk Enrichment
The House Where Winter Lives is an immersive storytelling adventure for children aged three to six years old.
Mr and Mrs Winter invite children to join them in their warm and welcoming cottage, as they are preparing for a winter feast. Unfortunately they’ve mislaid the key to their larder! The children join them on their journey through a secret forest to find the missing key.
From November 2012 to January 2013, Punchdrunk Enrichment transformed The Discover Children’s Story Centre in Stratford, East London, into a magical frozen forest where children and their families could explore the wonder of winter. The show had a sold out run at the Perth International Festival in February 2014.
“This stunning little show is a magical achievement” The Times
“This production…leaves you totally delighted.” ☆☆☆☆ The Guardian
“The coolest kids show in town.” ☆☆☆☆ Time Out
“Sweet and almost poignantly old-fashioned…This show is definitely recommended.” ☆☆☆☆ The Telegraph
Commissioned by Discover Children’s Story Centre, Stratford, East London. Funded by Arts Council England and Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.
