"A masterfully written generational clash lies at the heart of this timely story rich in insight, poignancy and
optimism...a seasonal show with a heart and mind." – Guardian
Mitch and Murray Productions, in association with Redgate Revue Stage, presents the Canadian premiere of SNOWFLAKE from Friday, December 10 to Thursday, December 23 on Granville Island at the Redgate Revue Stage.
The critically-acclaimed festive hit by Olivier Award-winning playwright Mike Bartlett is a narrative about generational divides. Andy loves nostalgic television, pints down at the pub, and listening to the whole album from beginning to end. His daughter, Maya, wears good shoes, likes good arguments, and has a secret plan to bring down the government. The trouble is, three years ago Maya left home, and they haven't spoken since. But this Christmas, she might be coming back. Andy knows she's going to stay. Maya knows she's not.
Directed by Jennifer Copping and featuring performances by Aaron Craven, Natasha Burnett and Anni Ramsay, SNOWFLAKE is an epic story about generational conflict, fathers and daughters, and whether we're living in the best or worst of times.
"As the world works to emerge from this global pandemic, we are thrilled to return to live performance with another great play and some inventive educational programming," says Artistic Director Aaron Craven. "In addition to our December production of SNOWFLAKE, we'll be community building with our annual Young Actors Scholarship as well as breaking down barriers of access to the arts with a new workshop, ACTING ATYPICAL, which is a foundational exploration of acting for teens and adults on the autism spectrum. Our tenth year promises to be our most rewarding yet."
