It is a thinking person's play,as you do not clearly know where it is going. The acting is very good.

Very, very difficult subject matter -- brutal. Well acted, with interesting using of video as part of set. Left theater feeling sick and dirty, like after a visit to the Holocaust Museum.

Very lucky with parking, finding spot directly across...continued

Quotes & Highlights

The Ice Child is a must see for anyone willing to look upon a horrible, but easily conceivable slice of life. Be prepared to shift uncomfortably in your seat and feel the pressure of terror closing in on you. I promise, it’s fun!” —DC Metro Theatre Arts

Description

Urban legend gets a shot of Edgar Allan Poe and a dash of contemporary horror in Factory 449’s world premiere of The Ice Child.

Catherine wakes to find herself imprisoned in a coffin-size freezer chest. To discover how she got there — and whether she can talk her way to freedom — she must quickly decide which of her captors to trust. Outside her makeshift prison, a struggle soon arises over Catherine’s treatment that will decide the fate of victims and villains alike. Told through a heart-pounding mash-up of film, live performance, and visual art, The Ice Child is a ticking time bomb of a show.
