THE ARSONISTS

  • Louis Bluver Theatre at The Drake 302 South Hicks Street Philadelphia, PA, 19102 United States (map)

PERFORMANCE

When M loses her father in an arson gone wrong, she goes on a journey with his ghost to reclaim her life and reframe his memory. Set deep in a Florida swamp, The Arsonists is a lyrical Southern Gothic myth about a father-daughter arson team deconstructing their personal demons. Inspired by the Greek tragedy Electra, this play with music explores the relationship between parent and child in that small space between life and death, the last breath before the awakening. The final play in Goldfinger's Southern Gothic trilogy, which began with the terrible girls and Skin & BoneThe Arsonists is the 2016 Runner Up for the Leah Ryan Prize and was developed at The Kennedy Center.
