About the Play
 
It’s winter and it’s snowing as members of Mrs. Samson’s English class listen to the radio and get ready for school. They are announcing school closings for the day and as soon as the kids hear “Deerpoint” they are on their way to a day of fun in the snow. What they’re not expecting is Eva, a mysterious girl who steps from a snowbank and into their lives. Eva helps the kids to find new ways to understand themselves.
 
Sampson likes the play for its message and for its humor. “It’s rare to find a play written for high school students that actually sounds like the way they talk,” says Sampson. “I admire the play’s heart and its ability to draw characters that feel real and alive.” In the course of a single snow day, Snow Angel captures the spirit and challenge of teenage life, and promises to stir up enthusiasm for the upcoming winter season.
