Beneath a sky full of stars a decision is made. This decision sets off an astonishing chain of events. And a journey involving a talking leopard, a greedy king, a magical bird, a tidal wave, a sea witch, a lost soldier, a devious dolphin, a war . . . and a trail of feathers in the snow.

This family play by acclaimed playwright and children’s author Philip Ridley is an epic story of magic and migration. Covering over five hundred years – and with scope for a huge cast – Feathers in the Snow explores how stories give meaning to random events . . . and our constant need to find somewhere we call ‘home’.

Feathers in the Snow received its first performance at Southwark Playhouse, London on 5 December 2012.
