Depicting a teenage girl's solo journey to the North Pole with her father's ashes, A Hundred Words for Snow is a complex, epic and undulating story by Tatty Hennessy that pitches themes of death and rebirth against a shifting backdrop of climate change, exploration and the uncertain geography of the North.
A monologue play, A Hundred Words for Snow was a finalist in the inaugural Heretic Voices competition, presenting the best new writing in monologue form, and celebrating unique voices with exceptional stories to tell. It was first performed at the Arcola Theatre, London, in 2018.
The play is also available in the volume, Heretic Voices: Three Award-winning Monologues..
