Based on the story by Conrad Aiken. Dramatized by Susan Carle with Tim Kelly.
Cast: 6m., 5w. (several bits.) "The narrowing world of Paul Hasleman" is the description of the locale of this play about a sensitive high-school student whose addiction to daydreaming leads him to an obsession with his visions of snow. Even in a school classroom with the teacher or a girlfriend talking to him, Paul uses his inner sight to live in an encroaching imaginary world of snowdrifts and promises of peace, remoteness, cold and sleep. Is it the edge of insanity? Possession? Another dimension? An opportunity for creativity as the snow becomes more and more personal. Bare stage w/props. Approximate Running Time: 20 minutes.
