Fraxi Queen of the Forest
Home provider, light giver, and oxygen producer, Fraxi the Ash tree is a guardian (and BFF!) to all woodland creatures. When tragedy strikes and Fraxi is infected with the ash-dieback virus, her childhood friend Woody must choose how to save the forest. A triumph of whimsical physical theatre for young audiences written by Scotland New Playwrights award winner, Jack Dickson.
Debuted at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016. Shortlisted for the Edinburgh Fringe Sustainable Practice Award.

The four performers present the story in compelling, vibrantly physical style, with wonderful DIY costumes and a bit of gentle interactivity with the children in the audience enriching the experience.
Not only does this surprising topic make a compelling drama, it holds its young audience absolute captivated.
Intelligent, thoughtful, thoroughly researched and relevant, with beautiful costumes and first class performances.
A beautiful and intensely moving piece of theatre.
