A student-written and -directed production of an original queer tragedy. Winner of the Dharma-Grace Foundation Creative Writing award.

Winter challenges audiences to be aware of their actions and the effects they’ll have on others. Bucky is on a downward spiral trying to pull himself back up. Brad has to deal with questions about the future. Andrew and Zane grow together but find friction in an inability to speak for themselves. D is trying to learn from his past mistakes, while Harper struggles to be there for her drug-addicted girlfriend. Follow this group of friends, enemies, and lovers as they enter adulthood amidst the opioid epidemic. 

Notification of adult content: this production is recommended for mature audiences only.
