The tiny Michigan town of Radio Falls has been trapped in perpetual winter for a generation. Snow and ice coat every tree branch and telephone wire, and the unceasing blizzard surrounding the town means there's no way in or out. The last moment of heated passion brought the town its only remaining youth -- a young girl named Rose -- and it's up to her to save Radio Falls from the vicious curse of the Rime Witch. An optimistic and imaginative tale, Rose and the Rime returns to the stage this season with an enhanced production that features aerial spectacle and magic. Learn More

The audience experiences how intolerance can be exploited and used to seduce. And then, in a startling transition to the present moment, Pip Utton's breathtaking coup de theatre leaves the audience stunned.</p>
<p>Based on a day in the complex and destructive life of arguably the greatest British painter since Turner -- or, as Margaret Thatcher would have it, "the dreadful man who paints those horrible pictures". His was a life fuelled by drunkenness, gambling and a liking for a bit of rough.
