POLAR OPPOSITES: An Impossible Tale
Heidi Kraay, playwright

About ice. And melting. And drowning.
And saving. A play featuring animals of
the Arctic and Antarctic trying to save
their homes and two children much
closer to the equator who help them
— who are brave enough to try. If we all
work together, do we have a chance at
making it through?

The readings are appropriate for children ages 6-18.

Do I need to attend with my child?
Yes, all children 17 years or younger must be accompanied by an adult.
