The World Premiere of rose walk green ice is the culmination of work begun with Home and Agawam that explores self-awareness within communal bonds. By varying spatial orientation to the audience, utilizing various groupings, and highlighting key moments from previous pieces in the trilogy, audiences are offered multiple perspectives of each character, from a variety of angles. Through these perspectives, the audience is offered notions of familial bonding and identity formation, in the hopes that each audience member becomes more aware and appreciative of the complete self and of those around them.

Tickets are $22 in advance ($25 at the door) and are available at, or by calling TheaterMania/OvationTix at (866) 811-4111.
