Product Description
DIAMONDS IN THE SNOW is a short play dramatizing the origins of the song “Diamonds in the Snow”. At Christmas dinner, Grandpa is asked by his grandkids to tell a story about “the old days”. He tells about when he was a boy in the mountains of East Tennessee, and the family was too poor to have any toys — his widowed mother a textile mill worker who’d been laid off in October and the one narrow road leading into the hollow completely closed by snow. Even so, he believes Santa Claus will come, a belief his Aunt Leddy encourages by saying that if you look really hard, you can see “diamonds in the snow” — the footsteps of where an angel has walked — and your wish will be granted. On Christmas Eve, the boy dreams of diamonds in the snow and is awakened by strange noises outside and downstairs; he wakes his mother and aunt and discovers they have presents under their tree — as do all the homes in the hollow, even though the road is still blocked by snow. Playscript contains full set, stage, costume directions along with useful staging tips.
