"As narrator, heroine, victim and some time villain, Fiona Sneyd offers a riveting performance in the lead role. From the outset she fills her character with such confidence and intelligence that we know, almost instinctively, that we will surely see cracks in that veneerAs narrator, heroine, victim and some time villain, Fiona Sneyd offers a riveting performance in the lead role. From the outset she fills her character with such confidence and intelligence that we know, almost instinctively, that we will surely see cracks in that veneer...As the lead Sneyd offers a parallel for the play itself, witty, reflective and sad but never remorseful or tragic. Her excellent performance holds the whole piece together and she brings a great mix of gravity and vulnerability to the stage."

"I came along on Tuesday night and was a bit overwhelmed...it was a bit close to the bone, but congratulations on a truly fine production and for tackling a really hard facet of life. It needs to be done. I thought Fiona was splendidly convincing and all the cast filled their roles very well. I loved the way you have produced it."

"I just wanted to say that it was an absolute privilege to have been at Wit on Saturday night. I thought the cast did an amazing job – Fiona, of course was incredible...Keagan reminded me of the best of the nurses I had during those times. Her performance of various nursing procedures was flawless and she managed to make them look like something she did on a very regular basis."

"Nick and I both very much enjoyed the play. The acting, the staging, the story were all amazing. Nick and I have both been reflecting on it a lot. Your choice of plays Gaye are always so good for opening up new thought lines."

ABOUT US

The metaphor of Carving in Ice evokes the transience of theatre. Ice sculptures are crafted by artisans whose sculptures last only for a short while, then melt and disappear. Theatre too is ephemeral in its nature; once the season is completed, the existence of the play, the shapes, sounds, movement in space, the light on actors’ skin disappear from view – but as with ice sculptures the traces of the experience continue to live on in the minds of those who were present.
