Photo Flash: First Look at Ashley Griffin's SNOW at The Sonnet Theater

After a highly praised development at Playwrights Horizons, NYIT Award nominated A.N.O.N. Productions brings SNOW to The Sonnet Theater this fall to benefit Broadway Cares - Equity Fights AIDS. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

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.

Snow will premiere at The Sonnet Theater (358 West 44th St between 8th and 9th in The Producers Club) for ten performances October 17th through October 26th. For tickets, visit www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3078309 or call 1-800-838-3006.
