Firelfy Theatre Presents INFERNO
A man who's lost everything, driven to the brink of despair, is offered one final chance. One last glimmer of hope in the darkest night of the soul. But to earn it, he'll have to go through Hell.
Singing demons! Flying zombies! A dog so adorable it's terrifying! Inferno is an extraordinary odyssey through the pits of hell, elevated to formidable heights by the aerialists, contortionists, and acrobats of Firefly Theatre and Circus.
700 years after Dante Alighieri penned his opus, local playwrights Jocelyn Ahlf and Belinda Cornish send a modern-day Dante on a perilous journey through the underworld to find his true love.
"Inferno is a story of disillusionment and discovery, of basest greed and most exalted desire, and of the hope we can only find in truth," says Director Annie Dugan. "Join us at our workshop presentation as we plunge into a modern, spectacular retelling of Dante's epic adventure poem."
