The Ruskin Group Theatre is proud to present

“Strange Snow”

A love story for all of us

Sometimes, in the strangest of places,

someone unexpected comes into our lives, touches our heart,

and we are never ever the same.


The comedic drama, by Stephen Metcalfe, is the moving story of how all our dreams can be shattered in an instant. And the one’s that will save us are those we never would have imagined.


“Strange Snow” was commissioned by the Manhattan Theatre Club in New York and had its world premier there in 1982. Since then, it has been played successfully in theatres, throughout the world. In 1989, it was developed into the major motion picture “Jacknife”, starring Robert DeNiro and Ed Harris. Now, for its 25th Anniversary, Mr. Metcalfe has chosen The Ruskin Group Theatre, to premier an updated version of “Strange Snow”. The play formally took place in the early 70’s and has been modernized in a “Redux”, to reach a newer and wider audience.


“Strange Snow” is directed by John Ruskin and features Mikey Myers, Dane Zinter and Sarah Maine.
