Ashley Griffin's Fairy Tale Take SNOW to Return to NYC to Benefit BC/EFA
After a highly praised development at Playwrights Horizons, NYIT Award nominated A.N.O.N. Productions will be bringing SNOW to Theater 54 in Times Square this fall to benefit Broadway Cares - Equity Fights AIDS.
Exploring the power and importance of storytelling, Snow (a new play written by Ashley Griffin, creator of the pop culture phenomenon Forever Deadward, and the first person ever nominated for a major award for both playing and directing Hamlet) follows three disparate storylines that all revolve around the fairy tale Snow White.
Utilizing a structure similar to Cloud Atlas and The Hours, six actors playing multiple roles tell the stories of the Grimm Brothers (who originally collected and published the classic 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).
Incorporating aspects of American Gods, and classic storytelling techniques a la Peter and the Starcatcher, Snow is a dark and moving play that mines our storytelling traditions both in style and subject matter.
Note: This work contains adult subject matter, including the death of a child, sexual content and drug use. It is not recommended for small children. Parental discretion advised.
