‘Snow’ is a remarkable piece of writing. The two actors remain on stage for the duration of the unfolding tale. Described previously as a whodunit because of it’s thriller nature, the story is more about what has occurred than who has perpetrated the deed. It is obvious very early on that Liam has committed an act that is either immoral or criminal and Arthur’s job is to extract the truth. [more]

Well, it looks like The Little Yellow Digger show will be a sell out.
