Photo Coverage: A SMALL FIRE - Opening Night Party

On January 6, Playwrights Horizons (Tim Sanford, Artistic Director; Leslie Marcus, Managing Director) presented the World Premiere of A SMALL FIRE, a new play by Obie Award winner Adam Bock (The Drunken City at PH, The Receptionist, The Thugs, Swimming in the Shallows). Directed by Trip Cullman (Adam Bock's The Drunken City at PH and Swimming in the Shallows, plus Bachelorette, Some Men, The Last Sunday in June, the recent Edgewise, Adam Rapp's upcoming The Hallway Trilogy) the limited engagement will play through Sunday, January 23 at Playwrights Horizons' Mainstage Theater (416 West 42nd Street).

The cast features three-time Obie Award and Drama Desk Award winner Reed Birney (Circle Mirror Transformation, The Savannah Disputation at PH, Blasted), Tony Award nominee Celia Keenan-Bolger (Saved at PH, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Bachelorette), Tony Award winner Michele Pawk (Prayer for My Enemy at PH, Hollywood Arms, Cabaret, Mamma Mia!) and NAACP Image Award nominee Victor Williams (Deacon Palmer on "The King of Queens," Troilus and Cressida for New York Shakespeare Festival).

When a tough-as-nails contractor (Ms. Pawk) finds her senses slipping on the brink of her daughter's (Ms. Keenan-Bolger) wedding, the impact on her family is nothing less than seismic. A SMALL FIRE is a human parable in which unexpected loss leads to an unlikely love story.

The production features scenic design by Loy Arcenas, costume design by Ilona Somogyi, lighting design by David Weiner and original music and sound design by Robert Kaplowitz. Production Stage Manager is Lori Ann Zepp.
The performance schedule for A SMALL FIRE is Tuesdays at 7PM, Wednesdays through Fridays at 8PM, Saturdays at 2:30 PM & 8PM and Sundays at 2:30 PM & 7:30 PM. Single tickets, $70, may be purchased online via www.TicketCentral.com, by phone at (212) 279-4200 (Noon-8pm daily), or in person at the Ticket Central Box Office, 416 West 42nd Street (between Ninth & Tenth Avenues).
