A Snowfall in Berlin by Don Nigro; Directed by Shaun Peknic

Ian and I hadn’t been in La Tea together since 2002. That’s a long time and we have come a long way. We were both on the production team of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead and it was great. I remember it being a long run which wasn’t too common for independent theatre. We both learned so much on that production. So, it was great pleasure to support our friends, Shaun Peknic and Tatyana Kots on their fantastic work in A Snowfall in Berlin. Here’s Ian’s thoughts

A naked girl dead in a bathtub, an obsessive police detective, and an international collection of exiles making a film about a naked girl dead in a bathtub, an obsessive police detective, and an international collection of exiles making a film set the stage for Don Nigro’s psychological mystery A Snowfall In Berlin. Directed by Shaun Peknic, the six actors in the show hurtle through space and time, exploring the concepts of perception, predestination, and the concentric nature of reality amid the backdrop of a possible murder investigation. This taut 100 minutes is chock full of dialogue examining the nature of our reality, counterposed by the other actors in the piece, who never leave the stage, engaging in almost ghostly pantomime when they are not the direct subject of the moment. A Snowfall In Berlin runs through this weekend at Teatro LATEA at The Clemente Soto Velez Cultural Center 107 Suffolk Street. – Ian McDonald
