How to become someone special? How to break through in the world of youtubers? And at the same time lead a life outside the virtual world? At first glance, nothing happens in a small mountain town, it just snows regularly and people live in their own routine. Our hero Adam spends most of his time playing games and sharing his life on social networks. And he decides to take a step in life: to invite his classmate Eva to the ball, who he has long liked.

Unfortunately, she is looking for someone extraordinary, for someone who aims to be famous. Through virtual reality, Adam meets Player 999, who reveals secrets to him. A secret that could bring Adam the respect of his classmates and a ball with Eva would be within reach. Discovering mysterious tracks in the snow will make the town famous all over the world, our hero becomes an all-loved and respected youtuber. But what if it’s all a lie and virtual reality is all around us?

The term SNOWBall has several meanings in English (and globally). It can be a snowball, a ball at the end of the winter semester, but also a symbol for fake news, ie insignificant fictional information, on which more and more pack up. In our performance, all the meanings mentioned will intertwine.

The play for the Alfa Theater is written and directed by Jacek Malinowski, director, screenwriter and director of the Puppet Theater in Bialystok, Poland.
