The Young & The Restless: Snowman

by Greg MacArthur

a Section 8 Theatre production

April 15 – 26, 2003
at Performance Works, Granville Island

Snowman is a darkly comic journey into a frozen, emotionally-barren landscape of ice and snow. Set in a remote community at the edge of a glacial sheet, the play is a psychological investigation into the lives of four characters struggling with issues of isolation and identity. Told in a series of interwoven monologues, the story delves into the lives of a young couple in their 30s and their teenage friend, as they eek out a marginal existence – cutting wood, watching porn, building snowmen. Cut off from society (and from themselves) they are all stuck in their own isolating existence.

The production earned six Jessie Richardson Theatre Award nominations, winning in the category of Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role (Derek Metz)
