Snow Angel by David Lindsay-Abaire
When the quiet town of Deerpoint, Vermont is hit by the biggest blizzard in 107 years, a mysterious girl named Eva steps out of a snow bank and into the lives of 15 confused teenagers who are asked to help her in her search. What Eva’s searching for –and who she truly is– becomes a mystery that baffles, divides, and energizes the teens of Deerpoint. Told through journal entries and interactions among the students over the course of a single snow day, Snow Angel is a funny and eerie tale of teen angst, discovery, and the power of believing.

The Oath by Jacqueline Goldfinger
Location: GRCC Spectrum Theater Mezzanine, 160 Fountain Street
A Southern Gothic tale set during the Great Depression in which a wandering preacher is embroiled in the passions and politics of a swampy Florida outpost ruled with a macabre sense of justice by two rival sisters. It’s a darkly comic look at balancing ambition and ideals in a time of crisis.
Jacqueline (Jackie) Pardue Goldfinger is a dramaturg and award-winning playwright/screenwriter from Tallahassee, Florida (M.F.A. Screen and Television Writing, University of Southern California). She is the Literary Manager/PTC@PLAY Festival Director at Philadelphia Theatre Company (PTC) and a Senior Lecturer at University of the Arts (UArts). She’s also a Regional Vice President of the Literary Managers and Dramaturges of the Americas (LMDA).
Jacqueline has this to say about her work: “My work is inspired by the Southern Gothic style as portrayed in classic fiction – a style that heightens reality, gives epic importance to everyday situations, and embraces the macabre as a necessary, and instructive, part of life – yet transforms this literary style into an active and dramatic narrative for the stage.” [website]
