Experience a dramatic face-to-face encounter with one of the formative events of the American Revolution in the very room where it happened. In the aftermath of the Boston Massacre, the town’s leaders desperately struggle to prevent more bloodshed. Their decision could save a city, or tear apart an empire.

Four unarmed protesters are dead and eight more lie wounded by occupying British troops. Angry citizens crowd the streets and rumor has it that 10,000 men are about to enter Boston to remove the soldiers by force. Acting Governor Thomas Hutchinson must find a way to stem the tide of violence, or face open rebellion. Following last year’s sold-out run, Blood on the Snow returns to Boston’s Old State House, the site where, 250 years ago, Boston’s leaders placed Massachusetts on the road to revolution.

Due to the intimate nature of this production, there will be no late seating. Only 50 seats will be available per performance.
