The Snow Queen : A new Audio Drama for Children – NOW LIVE

BrokenCrow, in association with Garter Lane Arts Centre and the Everyman are delighted to present this new audio adaptation of The Snow Queen by Deirdre Dwyer.


This eight part serial audio drama will be accompanied by a package of illustrated cards, posted to your home. One card for every episode, to be opened on the appointed day, features a message from the characters. The opening of the sealed cards will add another beautiful dimension to the listening adventure.

The show is specially made for children from 8 years and up, featuring the voices of Aideen Wylde, Nicholas Kavanagh and Jacqui Kelleher and introducing two children, Mia Clifford and Fionn Butler as Gráinne and Caoimhín. Original music for the series will be composed and created by Anthony O’Dwyer.



The next episode will be aired this Friday 27th November, with NEW episodes online every Monday & Friday up until the 18th December.

Gráinne’s best friend Caoimhín has gone missing. He has been acting strangely lately and Gráinne knows something isn’t right. Now it is up to her to follow her feet, across a snowy winter world, to find her friend. Held up by mistakes and mishaps and helped by ravens and reindeer, Gráinne realises if she can keep her spirits up (and stop losing her shoes!) she should be able to rescue her friend from the icy clutches of The Snow Queen.

Limited edition packs are available from the Garter Lane Box Office at €15 (ROI) €17 (Overseas postage) and include the printed packs posted to your home and a link to the YouTube channel where each new episode will appear.
