A Small Fire

April 27 @ 8pm * April 28@ 8pm * April 29 @2pm

Presented at The Little Victory Theatre, 4089 Victory Blvd., Staten Island, NY

Adam Bock's meticulously craftedA Small Firefollows John and Emily Bridges, a long-married couple whose happy, middle-class lives are upended when Emily falls victim to a mysterious disease. As her senses are slowly stripped away - smell, taste, sight - Emily resolves to remain engaged with her community, relying on John to help her run her company and experience her daughter Jenny's wedding. But her stoic outlook reaches a breaking point when the disease steals her hearing, leaving her with nothing but touch to communicate with the world. Suddenly, she is completely dependent on the husband whose endless devotions she had always taken for granted.

Produced by special arrangement with Samuel French.

Why Hemlock?Hemlock, or Conium maculatum, is a poisonous plant native to Europe, the Mediterranean, and Africa. Referenced in ancient Greek literature, Socrates, on trialfor corrupting the youth and impiety, was sentenced to death by drinking a hemlock based mixture. Theatre gives us an opportunity to pose philosophical questions and explore the human condition through art. Hemlock is a reminder that not all who set out in search for answers were fortunate enough to do so without facing punishment or prosecution.
