Snow Geese is a well produced play about lost family fortune, sibling rivalry, the horrors of war, including German-American prejudice and grief. With World War I raging abroad, newly widowed Elizabeth Gaesling , masterfully played by Mary-Louise Parker, gathers her family for their annual shooting party to mark the opening of hunting season in rural, upstate New York.
But Elizabeth is forced to confront a new reality as her carefree eldest son comes to terms with his impending deployment overseas and her younger son discovers that the father they all loved left them deeply in debt. Together, the family must let go of the life they’ve always known.
