The critically acclaimed play The Terminal Velocity of Snowflakes by Nina Berry will be returning to Live Theatre this winter following its sell out success in December 2016. We said about the original production “. A passionate play about passion and the random nature of our futures, it is a great play to finish another astounding year of new writing at Live Theatre.” Indeed we listed the show as one of the best examples of new writing in our end of year review. The play, which will be performed in the theatre’s intimate Studio Theatre, will run from Wednesday 22 November to Saturday 16 December.
Described by The Guardian as “an exquisite, adorable, debut” the play follows Charlie and Rosie who are two people in many places.
Heather Carroll will be reprising her role as Rosie. She will be joined by Daniel Watson who will be making his first full length debut at Live Theatre. Daniel, who is a graduate of Project A at Theatre Royal Newcastle, will play Charlie.
Daniel is replacing Dean Bone who will be taking to the stage at London’s Trafalgar Studios this winter where he will be returning to his role as Jordan alongside Stephen Tompkinson and John Bowler in Patrick Marber’s The Red Lion.
From youth to old age, from Trafalgar Square to Chillingham Road, The Terminal Velocity of Snowflakeswill take a touching look at what it means to grow up, fall in love and how the tiniest, most seemingly insignificant detail can change eternity. Or then again maybe not.
The production, which started life as a twenty-minute short play performed as part of Live Theatre’s Christmas Adventures in December 2015, was then co-directed by Max Roberts and Graeme Thompson in 2016. This year Graeme will be directing the piece which is a beautiful tale asking if two paths in time can ever be the same.

Heather Carroll said: “I’m excited to be returning to my home town and Live Theatre this year with The Terminal Velocity of Snowflakes. Rosie is such an amazing part written by Nina and I can’t wait to get started and rediscover the world of Rosie and Charlie.”
Daniel Watson added: "I am absolutely thrilled to be performing my first full length play at Live Theatre. Over the past year I have been involved in a number of short pieces for 10 Minutes To.. and I am looking forward to returning to perform at this amazing venue and can’t wait for rehearsals to start."
