About the Play

After the Fire is a poem-performance-novella-for the stage.  The play conflates fractured monologues and dissolving scenes to explore the lives of:  Arthur (a kite brought down by a gale), The Old Woman (Arthur’s Mother), and Angela (sand at the bottom of the ocean).  Beginning in media res, the plot continuously shifts and alternates, revealing bits and pieces of each character to build a dream-like meditation about how even after death what “happened” continues to arrest us.
