Snowman is a dark examination of isolation and the search for identity, played against a remote, desolate landscape. Set at the edge of a glacial sheet, the play explores the lives of four lost characters, eking out a marginal existence, struggling to remain connected to themselves and to one another. The discovery of a body frozen deep into the ice and the arrival of an outsider sets in motion a series of events, which forever alters their lives of everyone.

Snowman has also been presented in Vancouver and at the Baxter Theatre Centre in Cape Town, South Africa. It was published by Coach House Books in an anthology entitled Exposure.
