About this show

In Freshly Fallen Snow by M.E.H. Lewis, Dr. Jane Smith pioneers a controversial new treatment for traumatic memory disorders, a procedure that will "edit" memories. Her reluctant first patient is AJ, a terribly scarred female veteran of the Iraq War. The driving force behind the doctor's ambitions and the person she most wants to heal is her own mother, a haunted survivor of World War II's Dresden firestorm. For both the mother and AJ, the real sources of their pain are lies and truths, long buried in their memories. Inspired by actual scientific research, "Freshly Fallen Snow" is an exploration of the memories that shape us, the stories we tell the world, and the dark space that lies between the two.
