In The Snow Geese, starring Tony and Emmy winner Mary-Louise Parker, playwright Sharr White offers the portrait of an upper class family in crises. Set during World War I, The Snow Geese provides us with insights into a New York family struggling with the past, present and future.
In The Snow Geese, it is time for the annual shooting party in upstate New York and recently widowed Elizabeth Gaesling is determined to lead the event. She has gathered her family for the rural adventure. But this is not an easy or happy time. Elizabeth must face an uncertain future without her husband and with two sons whose lives are changing forever. Her eldest is about to go to the war in Europe and her youngest son, discovering that the family is deeply in debt, must struggle with a new vision of the father he adored and admired. The Snow Geese provides us with insights into the harsh changes that influence and alter our lives.
