I found no reference to a particular play - the Waseda gives no further info on a precise venue either.
In my opinion the word 'snow' in the title alludes to the colour white of the Shirahata (White Flag), the very symbol of the Minamoto clan, opposing the Red Flag of the Taira clan.
In this way "yuki no Shirahata" could be translated as the 'Bright White Banner'.
