FIREMEN ARE RARELY NECESSARY at Mad Cat Theatre Company
by BWW News Desk - May 18, 2017

Mad Cat concludes its 17th season with a production of a world-premiere play by Theo Reyna entitled Firemen Are Rarely Necessary. In 2011, Florida's Governor banned the use of the phrases 'climate change' and 'global warming' by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. By 2015 the Governor had the ban extended to most other state agencies. 'Fireman are Rarely Necessary' is set in a not so distant Florida future where it has become increasingly difficult to find the right words to describe a place where things have gone very wrong. Reyna calls the play 'A dark comedy about some light censorship'. Florida. The not too distant future. Environmental journalist Mara Lowe receives the tip of her life. Toxic waste is eroding Florida's limestone bedrock. Determined to get to the truth, Lowe sets out to unravel a conspiracy involving big business, censorship, and the Governor himself.  This production is made possible by a Knight Foundation Arts Challenge Grant awarded to Mad Cat as part of their Banned/New Series. This is the second play this season dealing with censorship, following Mad Cat's production of Vaclav Havel's Audience and Protest, two short plays exploring freedom of speech and expression in Czechoslovakia under a totalitarian regime.  (more...)
