Publisher’s Synopsis (from its website)

Red Snow is a Canadian play, inspired by the forgotten holocaust of World War II [the rape of Nanking].  It is about one Canadian woman’s recurring nightmare which drives her on a quest to dig through her family’s buried history in China.  When she meets a Japanese man, she must confront historical forces that threaten her own personal journey towards love.  The play brings the message of collective healing and global peace.
