Boston, March 6, 1770.
Four unarmed civilians have been killed and eight more wounded by the King's soldiers.
Acting Governor Thomas Hutchinson is presented with a stark choice -
Remove the troops and give in to the mob's demands or face another night of bloodshed.

Many know the story of the Boston Massacre, but few know of the events that took place the day after, on March 6, 1770. Blood on the Snow is a new play by Patrick Gabridge, set and staged in the Council Chamber of the Old State House. Almost 250 years ago, in that very room, the leaders of Boston struggled to heal their town and unwittingly placed Massachusetts on the road to revolution.
