Through whimsical puppetry and storytelling Frozen River tells the story of two children hundreds of years ago—one who is Cree, the other Scottish—as they meet in the forest of what will one day become modern-day Manitoba. A broken promise between them leaves a lasting impact and we follow what this means for their modern-day descendants. This poignant and powerful play about reconciliation, environmentalism and interconnectedness is suitable for children of all ages.
