A new play by triple Olivier Award Winner Mike Bartlett (Doctor Foster, King Charles III)

Directed by Olivier Award Winner Clare Lizzimore

‘Christmas – isn’t that when they come home?’

Andy’s 43. He loves nostalgic television, pints down the pub, and listening to the whole album from beginning to end. His daughter Maya is 21, 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.

Full of the warmth, wit and heartbreak of Christmas, Snowflake is an epic story about generational conflict, fathers and daughters, and whether we’re living in the best or worst of times.

A major new premiere, created just for Oxford by one of the UK’s leading writers.

“(Mike Bartlett) is one of the prime movers in a new golden generation of British playwrights” – The Independent

★★★★ “Warm, touching and funny” Top 10 UK Christmas Shows – The Stage on Thirty Christmases, (Old Fire Station 2016)

Accessible shows
Captioned performances: Both performances on Thursday 13 December will be captioned, for audiences who are D/deaf or hard-of-hearing.

Relaxed performance: The 2.30pm performance on 20 December will be relaxed. You are always welcome, but we know the theatre can feel intimidating for audience who can’t always control when they move or make noise. A relaxed performance is an environment where you can feel free to be yourself.
