Andy's forty-three. He loves nostalgic television, pints down the pub, and listening to the whole album from beginning to end. His daughter, Maya, is twenty-one, wears good shoes, likes good arguments, and has a secret plan to bring down the government.
The trouble is, three years ago Maya left home, and they haven't spoken since. But this Christmas, she might be coming back. Andy knows she's going to stay. Maya knows she's not.
Mike Bartlett's play Snowflake is an epic story about generational conflict, fathers and daughters, and whether we're living in the best or worst of times. It premiered at the Old Fire Station, Oxford, in 2018, directed by Clare Lizzimore.
