Six actors take on multiple roles in this trio of tales, including the Grimm Brothers, who originally collected and published the 'Snow White' fairy tale; the Campbells, a Victorian theatrical family whose lives begin to mirror Snow White; and modern-day Astrid, a young woman who, after her abusive mother puts her in a coma, must decide whether or not to wake up. Recommended for mature audiences.

Theater In The Now

"An overstuffed production that never really finds its footing...It's a little too grand and impractically unadulterated…'Snow' is in desperate need of dramaturgical assistance…It’s a theatrical thesis on the Grimm’s story that is repetitive and often uninteresting…Fluidity was on the side of Vogel, effortlessly bouncing from story line to story line. For the most part, he was able to pull out the themes within the text but simply due to the one-dimensional characters, the piece flatlined." Full Review

“‘Snow’ is a beautifully ambitious play. Are the deep things that we desire in our heart of hearts – a love that will last forever, someone to save us, hope in a hopeless world – the things epitomized in our stories, actually real? The idea that ‘we are all stories in the end’ is powerfully explored, as is the nature of goodness – what it means to be good and why goodness does not always lead to happiness. This is a play that, while not easy to see, needs to be seen." Full Review
