Plumb Theatre brings you Mike Bartlett’s brilliant examination of the polarisation that is rife throughout today’s society.

Set in a church hall in Oxford on Christmas Eve, Snowflake begins as Andy – a mildly-outraged fifty-something feeling at odds with the new generation's way of thinking – nervously prepares for a reunion with his daughter after years of no contact. A beautifully balanced portrayal of how the Boomer and Millennial generations struggle to find the common ground. 

This NZ Premiere of the London smash hit that garnered rave reviews: 
“a masterfully written generational clash” The Guardian
“gripping” The Telegraph
“it’s rather special”  What’s on Stage
“devastatingly insightful” The Stage

Snowflake: a slang term coined by Baby Boomers for a Millennial with an inflated sense of uniqueness, who is overly-emotional, easily offended, and unable to deal with opposing opinions.
