A play about being a teenage mother is coming to Preston.


Ice Baby is written and performed by young people as part of Cumbria-based Ashton Group Theatre Factory’s Apprenticed Actors project.

It was first performed in 1997 and is being re-staged for the group’s 20th anniversary.

The play is about a 17-year-old mum, her baby, her mates and what happens to them one freezing winter night when they are visited by goblins.

Ashton Group’s stage manager George Floyd said: “We’re delighted to be coming back to The Continental.

“The commitment to our plays is evident, and the welcome and level of assistance given us by the staff makes it a performance space that we look forward to returning to each year.”

Tickets available via SeeTickets and £3.30 in advance.
