This November 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, Physician Foster), Snowflake stars Michael Lawrence (Simpatico), Layla Pitt (Po’ Boys and Oysters) and Clementine Mills (Cease Kiss).
Led by director Paul Gittins (Collected Tales, Religion Healer), Snowflake is a heartfelt cry for reconciliation and understanding within the present local weather of polarisation and intolerance. “It cuts straight to the center of all the pieces that is occurring in our world in the intervening time by means of the intelligent lens of a father-daughter battle” says Gittins.
Andy, performed by Michael Lawrence, is a nostalgic boomer, widower and father; he loves a pint down the pub and listening to albums from starting to finish. His twenty-one 12 months outdated daughter Maya (Clementine Mills) left dwelling three years in the past and hasn’t spoken to him since. It is Christmas Eve and Andy hears Maya is again on the town. Fuelled with recent hope, Andy matches out the native church corridor for a welcome dwelling and waits.
“Christmas… that is after they say individuals come dwelling…”
Coronary heart-warming, topical and considerate, Bartlett’s bittersweet Christmas play Snowflake explores generational battle, child boomer vs millennial values and the battle to seek out frequent floor. Snowflake showcases lighting design from Michael Goodwin. Get into the Christmas spirit at Pitt St Theatre and e book your tickets right now by means of iTICKET.
