Strange Snow

Both Megs and Davey survived the Vietnam War, but they're having trouble surviving back home. This April morning, bright and early at 5 a.m., Megs is banging on his old buddy's door announcing it's the start of fishing season. He never suspects Martha, his friend's older sister, will be the one to open the door -- to a myriad of wondrous new possibilities. Stephen Metcalfe's Off-Broadway success is a truthful, solid portrayal of the emotional fallout that lingers long after the war is over. Directed by C. Michael Wright and featuring Marques Causey, Krystal Drake & Di'Monte Henning. Tickets are $30 for preview performances and $40 for regular performances. Discounts for students, seniors, groups of 10 or more, and rush tickets are available. Performances run every Wednesday through Sunday.
