FIRE IN A DARK HOUSE To Premiere At Whitefire Theatre September 13
The Whitefire Theatre and Slowly I Turned Productions present a world premiere drama FIRE IN A DARK HOUSE, about two star-crossed young lovers, their families and community, all thrown into turmoil as anti-immigrant fervor against German-Americans sweeps the nation and their Midwest town during World War I. The play, created by Mona Z. Smith and Traci Mariano, runs Thursdays at 8:00 pm, September 13 - November 15, at the Whitefire Theatre in Sherman Oaks, CA.
FIRE IN A DARK HOUSE is a poignant wartime romance about a passionate young woman who falls for the son of a powerful newspaper publisher who is waging a dangerous propaganda campaign against immigrant families, including her own. Drawing inspiration from historical events, the play explores themes that resonate strongly today and asks us to consider what it means to be an American, an immigrant, a young Dreamer, and a patriot.
The cast features the talents of Tallula Henderson, Andrew J. Langton, Margy Love, Augusta Mariano, Paul McCrillis, Sanford Reed, and Aaron Stevenson.
