For hardy theatergoers and others seeking a novel way to spend a winter afternoon, the Neo-Political Cowgirls will present their current production “Zima!” on Saturday at Montauk County Park.

An interactive winter journey, the performance combines mystery, poetry, theater, and exploration. Participants will be given clues while watching vignettes as they move through town and try to solve the given mystery. Groups will leave the park every 15 minutes starting at 1 p.m. for the hourlong walk, with the final group setting out at 2:15. Hot cocoa and music will be available at Third House.

Tickets are $8, $5 for those 12 and under, and are available at
