Set in the frozen North, Cindy Lou Johnson's lyrically neurotic drama about broken dreams, stranded romance, and the male/female divide played artfully with some screwball comedy tropes, and her wounded characters touched the heart.
As a combustible odd couple, Janet Snetsinger killed it as the runaway bride seeking shelter from the storm inside her, while Marcus Bruce's hermit provided solid support for the distressed damsel's high flying arias.

“A totally compelling ninety minutes…cogent drama that grips the audience right from the start and rarely lets up. It's a chance to see a blazing new acting talent - Janet Snetsinger.“
Robert Crew, The Toronto Star
“This explosive drama features a truly dynamic performance by Janet Snetsinger as the bride with cold feet who flees to Alaska and the cabin of a reclusive man...Under Jon Michaelson's direction the interplay between the two characters is fascinating. “
Mary Dickie, NOW magazine
“An excellent comedy-drama…with a stunning performance by Janet Snetsinger as the runaway bride. As usual Jon Michaelson provides direction that is sharp and tight…One of the best shows in town.
