About the show:
Intrepid Victorian adventurer Horace is out hunting yeti! He’s trekking across the Himalayas, hoping to find one of the legendary Abominable Snowmen. The creature is guarding a priceless jewel, which is wanted by Queen Victoria herself.
But things change when Horace actually meets the Yeti, who turns out to be far from Abominable. Together they head off on a journey though the valley of Shangri-La, here mythical beasts live hidden from humanity.
But Horace has to make a choice. Will it be personal glory or saving the natural world?
The show was originally commissioned and developed through a Research & Development period with The Civic Theatre, Barnsley and ARC, Stockton.
Written and with music by Jack Dean Directed by Tom Wright
