Cadfael: The Virgin in the Ice - theatre....

The world premiere stage adaptation of Ellis Peters’ famous medieval sleuth.
It is winter 1139 and raging civil war has sent many refugees fleeing north from Worcester, among them an orphaned boy, his beautiful 17 year old sister and a young nun. But they seem to have disappeared somewhere in the wild winter landscape of frost and snow – and Brother Cadfael embarks on a dangerous quest to find them.
The search will lead him to discover a chilling and terrible murder, and a tale of passion gone astray.
Ellis Peters’ Cadfael novels sold millions of copies worldwide and spawned a very successful television series starring Derek Jacobi.
Featuring film projections, lavish settings and bespoke music, this stunning new production is produced by the same company that bought you The Holly & The Ivy and On Golden Pond.

Sadly have to say I found this boring. The story line was delivered in a very disjointed way and the whole thing felt very flat, with no great highs or lows. Out of the four of us two enjoyed it and two didn't, so it wasn't awful just not my sort of thing.
