The Arsonists

By Jacqueline Goldfinger

March 31-April 1, 2017

Set deep within a Florida swamp, The Arsonists is a lyrical Southern Gothic tale of grief, loss, and redemption. When M loses her father to an arson gone wrong, she is led across his memory and myth to find her own identity in the ashes. Inspired by the Greek tragedy Electra, this play with music explores the relationship between parent and child in that small space between life and death, the last breath before the awakening.
