A Terrific Fire
Part haunted house and part adventure novel, A Terrific Fire follows Dr. Wishniak, a Victorian mind scientist fraught with anachronisms, on his quest for wild living. As he leads the audience deeper into his psyche, new extremists emerge from the shadows, the theatre changes shape, perspectives shift, the guides are no longer trustworthy, and the journey gets personal. Using themes from Henrik Ibsen’s epic morality play Brand, A Terrific Fire examines the extreme nature of modern life and the ways that what you love will be your undoing.
