Spark Theater Presents the regional premiere of sally nemeth’s “Mill Fire”!
Set in a small town in the late 70?s , "Mill Fire" tells the story of Marlene who has lost her husband in a fire at the steel mill along with several other men. She refuses to grieve in the conventional, appropriate manner which puts her at odds with the rest of her community and at odds against her brother, who survived the fire, and her sister-in-law. Who is to blame for the tragedy? Is it the steel mill with their economic pressures? Was Marlene’s brother incapacitated by medication and unable to perform to the standards of his job? Or perhaps the tragedy is not the lives lost but the lives missed.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings, May 10 – June 1 @ 8 pm
