This dark fairy tale for adults begins with a couple attending an ante-natal hospital appointment before being mysteriously transported to a stark frozen forest.  Lost in the woods, savaged by the cold and hunted by a terrifying beast, they must save themselves and their unborn child.  In their desperation, they stumble upon an abandoned cabin.  So begins a struggle for survival in which they must face the hostile elements, malign magical forces and a truly terrible choice.

Addressing themes of love, grief, madness and redemption, COLD combines physical theatre with cutting edge filming techniques to create a uniquely dramatic audience experience.  The project was filmed on the main stage of the Courtyard, Hereford.

Following the screening there will be a live symposium with members of the creative team and experts in the field of baby loss and miscarriage.

Recommended viewing 14+.

To take pain and make something beautiful from it is extraordinary enough, but COLD goes even further than that. It is theatrically ingenious, bold and arresting, and unflinchingly addresses what might be the most defining and universal of all human experiences - loss - Gareth McLean, Journalist (Guardian and Radio Times)
