You can't trust the fairies. The fairies stole the baby and left the Ice Child in its place. This is the story of the Ice Child. He's not like other children. He's lost in a world that doesn't understand and doesn't welcome him. The Ice Child can't be hugged, can't be cuddled or he'll melt.

This is a tale of growing up different. It's a fairy story – a story told by the fairies about people. And it's a love story – a story about love.

Using sound, real-time video and live performances, a motley band of contemporary sídhe (fairy-folk) enact a dazzling once-upon-a-time tale about people.

Author Mike Kenny is an Olivier theatre award winner- his adaptation of E. Nesbit's much-loved family drama The Railway Children at Waterloo Station theatre won the Best Entertainment Olivier in 2011.
