A lake freezes over and people die in this timeless and poetic tale of love and loss on frozen water. A purely Minnesotan meditation on the natural world and how we live in it. Finn wakes up one morning to discover that his foot is missing, but what he finds in his longtime relationship with Dove more than fills the emptiness in his life and helps him learn to balance again.
Lanny Langston, director of The Glass Menagerie with Theatre Coup d'Etat, and assistant director of Equus with Theatre Coup d'Etat will be directing this play. Having moved to the Twin Cities a few years ago from Salt Lake City, this will be his first production at Minnesota Fringe.
