The Arsonists

by Jacqueline Goldfinger

NNPN Rolling World Premiere 
Directed by Gail Dartez
March 14 – April 15, 2018

When starting over means setting fire to what you know and love. Set deep in a Florida swamp, The Arsonists is a father-daughter tale of grief, loss and redemption. Inspired by the Greek tragedy Electra, this play with music is a contemporary American myth that explores the relationship between parent and child in that small space between death and life, the last breath before the awakening. It is the runner-up for the 2016 Leah Ryan Prize, and was nominated for the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and L. Arnold Weissberger Award for Playwriting.

“A remarkable work…an authentic and original commentary on the difficulty, but also the necessity, of letting go.” Sacramento Press

“CapStages’ ‘Arsonists’ sparks provocative ideas about life, death
and family legacies.” Sacramento Bee

“…Directed with the right blend of intensity and delicacy by Gail Dartez. Wicks is mesmerizing…” SN&R

“Compelling story, spectacular scenic design… each bit of dialogue
is pure gold.” Davis Enterprise

“An amazing concentration of potent imagery… keeps your brain humming.” CapRadio
