a full-length play, 2 F/3 M/cellist

Synopsis: Nate and Zoe are glaciologists conducting research on the rate of ice flow in a remote outpost on Broadmore Glacier, Alaska.  While the ice beneath them moves at unprecedented speed, their marriage is in crisis.  Roger, a PR exec from the company who funded their research grant, arrives to get footage of the project.  Meanwhile, the trio is being watched by Trapper Max, an old woman with a secret and a penchant for showing up at inopportune times.  After Nate falls and breaks his leg, Max “rescues” him… or does she?  The Memory of Ice is a wild ride — full of unexpected moments, awkward emotions, and inconvenient changes.  It asks—how do we live a life of hope and see beauty in the face of continually changing conditions?
