I have to admit, I’m not quite sure what SNOW WHITE was about. Almost certainly, it was not the story you’re thinking of.
In this adaptation — which incorporates academic theory on performance, capitalism, alienation, and democracy; a somewhat murky parody of Donald Trump; a monologue on reparations for white supremacy and the enslavement of Black people; and a sexualized reading of an online recipe for fruit salad and its comments— Snow White is a polyamorous housewife and philosopher of sorts, frequently deadpanning commentary and insights to the audience.
