The play is set in Evanston, Illinois, where winters keep getting worse and salt truck drivers Peter and Basil battle the ice and snow and pass the time with jokes and stories. Their boss Maiworm has noble visions of new green technology that would make their jobs obsolete, but there may be a more terrifying warning calling out from under the roads.

Arbery also penned Corsicana and the Pulitzer Prize finalist Heroes of the Fourth Turning.

The production will also have scenic design by Matt Saunders, costume design by Sarafina Bush, lighting design by Isabella Byrd, sound design by Mikaal Sulaiman, voice and text coaching by Gigi Buffington, and casting by Judy Henderson.

The production stage manager is Rachel Denise April, and the assistant stage manager is Stephen Varnado.
