BENEATH THE BLIZZARD

For a long time, nobody has ventured above ground. An icy wind screams and drifts of snowmen haunt the streets.
But down in a secret bolthole, the music beats on. A band of survivors and misfits, chancers and outcasts, dance in the dark.

This winter FINE CHISEL breathe life into a fantastical troupe of rogues and rebels on the eve of an extraordinary adventure.
Expect fast-paced instrument swapping and faster-paced character swapping, as we burrow underground with our customary blend of playful storytelling and rousing folk tunes with soaring harmonies.

BENEATH THE BLIZZARD played as the Christmas 2016/17 production at The Bike Shed Theatre, Exeter and then toured to a selection of theatres, village halls and alternative spaces around the Southwest.
