Springs Ensemble Theatre continues our critically acclaimed sixth main-stage season with Jane Chambers’ A LATE SNOW, opens April 9th and performs through April 26th, 2015.
A LATE SNOW is the story of a woman trapped in a snowstorm with her first, last, current and, possibly, next lover. A Late Snow is about how we find love, how we decide the right partner for us, and how to finally choose to live an authentic life.
Ellie is a professor at a conservative college in a conservative state. She worries about being openly gay, as it could mean she will lose her job. Jane Chambers, who was far ahead of her time, wrote A Late Snow in 1974, when people had to worry about the risks of living a life true to themselves. Now, in 2015, there are still conservative circles in conservative states where LGBT professionals still worry about what their peers might think and how it might affect their work, family, and livelihood. We have come so far, but the fact that Jane Chambers’ words still ring true today shows us just how far we still have to go. As part of a season that is 80% written by strong, female writers, SET is excited to bring this seldom-seen, ground-breaking play back to the Front Range!
