About this show

In Yevgeny Grishkovets' most engaging play, Winter, two lovable, Chaplinesque paratroopers find themselves assigned to a mysterious military operation: the detonation of high-powered explosives in the middle of an enchanted, snow-covered forest. Alone with their map and their doomsday bomb, the men come to realize they are freezing to death and may not make it through to morning. As they begin to confront the inevitability of their deaths-by-frost, the fairy-tale character Snow Maiden emerges from the deepest part of the forest, an impish beauty who charms and toys with the men, conjuring dreams, memories, and transcendent desires.
