A teenager, clearly a Daddy’s girl, grieving for her dead father, decides to fulfill his dreams of being an explorer and take his ashes to the North Pole. Armed with Wikipedia knowledge and her mother’s credit card, she sets off on an improbable adventure. Stopping in Norway long enough to lose her virginity and ride in a helicopter, her frantic mother finally finds her thoughtless daughter, and, presumably, they live happily ever after.

Inis Nua’s presentation of A Hundred Words for Snow, written by Tatty Hennessy, is an American premiere. This solo show is performed by Satchel Williams, who can best be described as adorbs.
