The End of Winter

By Noelle Janaszweska. Directed by Kate Gaul. From Siren Theatre Co and Critical Stages Touring.

A beautiful new solo performance production from the same team behind the hit show Good with Maps. Siren Theatre Co and the award-winning team behind Good With Maps are collaborating again on Noëlle Janaczewska’s next masterpiece - The End of Winter.
