What I liked

While all the plays in “Paper Trails” were extraordinary, for me, the acting and writing of “Snow” definitely shined. In “Snow” Tim Dvorak and Christine Weatherup artfully balance the dispirited and sanguine viewpoints of Archives staff working under the current administration. Tim and Christine’s portrayals are both subdued yet powerful, this is a stage production that feels intimate. Their parley between dejected and hopeful makes each character more human and relatable. Who would have thought that I’d be commiserating with and rooting for congressional archivists.

What I didn't like

Seating was a bit tight

My overall impression

Three one act plays centered around the theme of how we record and interpret the past. Each play explores how we draw upon these records to define our collective and individual histories. Very well written and extremely well acted.
