Plumb Theatre presents the New Zealand premiere of the critically acclaimed festive-hit Snowflake.
Written by Olivier Award-winning playwright Mike Bartlett (King Charles III, Doctor Foster), Snowflake stars Michael Lawrence (Simpatico), Layla Pitt (Po' Boys and Oysters) and Clementine Mills (Stop Kiss) with direction from Paul Gittins (Collected Stories, Faith Healer).
Andy is a nostalgic boomer, widower and father; he loves a pint down the pub and listening to albums from beginning to end. His twenty-one-year-old daughter Maya left home three years ago and hasn’t spoken to him since. It’s Christmas Eve and Andy hears Maya is back in town. Fuelled with fresh hope, Andy fits out the local church hall for a welcome home & waits.
“Christmas… that’s when they say people come home…”
Heart-warming, topical and thoughtful, Bartlett’s bittersweet Christmas play Snowflake explores generational conflict, baby boomer vs millennial values and the struggle to find common ground.
Plumb Theatre gratefully acknowledges the generous support of the Chisholm Whitney Charitable Trust and Auckland Council in the presentation of this work.
