Jobsite’s relationship with internationally-renown filmmaker, poet, and playwright Israel Horovitz was recognized last year with a Best of the Bay Award from Creative Loafing. Now, Jobsite takes on one of his newest plays, recently seen at his Gloucester Stage and then New York’s prestigious LaMaMa.

Taking on the role of David is long-time Jobsite Artistic Associate Paul J. Potenza, who most recently stunned regional audiences and critics alike as Ulysses in Annapurna. Paul’s work on our stage has also been lauded in productions such as The Pillowman, The Boys Next Door, American Buffalo, The Guys, Blackbird, and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead.


Man in Snow is a powerful family drama with both humor and heart. David, recently retired and mourning the loss of his son, revisits Alaska’s Mt. McKinley after 25 years. This time, however, he’s not there to climb it, but to guide a group of Japanese honeymooners who hope to conceive a child under the spell of the Northern Lights. This is passionate, compelling storytelling that is guaranteed to have audiences on the edge of their seats.

Why It's For You

Because you loved Paul Potenza in Annapurna (or The Guys, or …). Because you’re becoming a huge fan of Israel Horovitz’s work after seeing plays like Gloucester Blue, Breaking Philip Glass, Lebensraum, and Sins of the Mother. Because you enjoy a great family drama with humor and heart. Maybe because you see yourself as a mountain climbing enthusiast?

Why We Chose It

In doing Gloucester Blue this past season, we really found that we enjoyed working on one of Israel’s new plays. Since this was first a radio drama later adapted for the stage, we felt that this play had an intense poetry to it and shows yet another facet of the genius that is Israel Horovitz. It also suits what we do best: intense character-driven storytelling on a simple but gorgeous stage.

About Israel Horovitz

International award-winning playwright, poet, and film-maker Israel Horovitz calls the region and Jobsite Theater home for a portion of the year. Both he and the company look forward to building on the success of Theatre Tampa Bay Recommended Gloucester Blue and Lebensraum, hailed a high critical success by regional critics and described “as good as it gets” from an ecstatic playwright who was in residence through opening weekend. Jobsite’s association with Horovitz also earned them a 2016 Creative Loafing Best of the Bay Award for “Best Link with the Greater Theatre World.”
