As snow clouds gather around the castle turrets, Jape the Jester dreams of one day being as funny as his famous dad. But how can Jape live up to everyone’s expectations? All seems hopeless until the most mysterious and extraordinary new friend appears, as if from nowhere. Together they discover that within every dark cloud there can be a silver lining.

My Friend Snow was an enchanting medieval treasure trove of tunes and tones, textures and tinctures, featuring original music and design inspired by the middle ages – with a contemporary twist for today’s audience.

The production presented in fully-integrated British Sign Language and English and was the 3rd of 6 plays developed in this format by the company and which toured nationally.
