AN EARLY HISTORY OF FIRE

Ended 26 May 2012 after 51 days

Awhirl in longing and confusion, An Early History of Fire marks David Rabe's return to The New Group, following the acclaimed revival of Hurlyburly.

Closed 26 May 2012

From one of the most influential playwrights of our time, a world premiere set at the tipping point of the early 1960s.

In a Midwestern town, Danny's world is defined by friendship and loyalty. But the bigger world is encroaching in the form of Karen, back from college in the east, alluring and unsettling because of what she now knows.

Still, Danny can't escape the grip of his immigrant father, who is mourning a vanished world of lost prestige and clinging to his only son.

Awhirl in longing and confusion, An Early History of Fire marks David Rabe's return to The New Group, following the acclaimed revival of Hurlyburly.
