The Snow Geese
World premiere play by Sharr White
Directed by Daniel Sullivan
Tony® and Emmy® winner Mary-Louise Parker (“Weeds,” Proof) returns to Broadway in this world premiere drama by Sharr White (The Other Place).
With war raging abroad, newly widowed Elizabeth Gaesling gathers her family for their annual shooting party to mark the opening of hunting season in rural, upstate New York. But Elizabeth is forced to confront a new reality as her carefree eldest son comes to terms with his impending deployment overseas and her younger son discovers that the father they all revered left them deeply in debt. Together, the family must let go of the life they’ve always known.
Tony winner Daniel Sullivan (Rabbit Hole, Proof) directs this stirring new play about a family waking up from their own personal Gilded Age as the world around them changes forever.
THE SNOW GEESE is a co-production with MCC Theater.
