Interior Set

Allan, a comic example of New Age male sensitivity, brings Brenda, a very young and very pregnant street-wise woman, to spend a non-traditional Christmas at the cabin of his yuppie friends in upstate New York. The two couples already there are suffering from grief and collapsing relationships. Nick and Sarah moved to the country for safety's sake. Tragically, their decision to move away from the city cost them the life of their unborn child in a freak accident. Marcy and Gary have been circling each other with arsenals of contempt and mutual infidelity, fueled by intellectual pursuits widely at odds with one another (he's a publisher, she's a puppeteer). Brenda shares the harrowing story of her pregnancy by rape, jolting the two couples away from their obsessive troubles. Through her humor, down-to-earth good sense and survivor's spirit, Brenda acts as the catalyst for a series of heartfelt, wickedly funny turns that result in the romantic shuffling of the couples, sometimes after explosive incidents, and sometimes just spinning out of tender communications they needed to share.
A touching yet raucous look at what attracts people to others and what makes them look inward to find out who they really are. "Not since Steel Magnolias [has there been] a new comedy as laughable and lovable as SNOWING AT DELPHI. The humor swells from smiles to chuckles to guffaws, and the sentiment waxes from warm to glowing." —NY Daily News.
