“What are you hunting for Abby?”

Sisters in the Snow is a magical tale of sibling rivalry, time travel, love and the power of art.

Written by American playwright Holly Johnson, the play is set in Vienna and inspired by Bruegel’s famous painting Hunters in the Snow

“Art is long, life is short”

Join us at Vinters for an evening amidst the Flemish lowlands where cultures connect, and the usual rules of science and time don’t apply.

Lose yourself in a winter snowscape and enjoy a glass of wine and a slice of Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte mit schlag.

The play was first performed in 2017 at the Fertile Ground Festival of New Work, a 11-day arts festival held every January in Portland, Oregon USA. This version of the play resulted from Holly visiting Streatham in June 2019 as STC Writer in Residence when she met with the Director and members of STC to workshop the script ready for its UK and European premiere.
