The Arsonists

  • Louis Bluver Theatre at The Drake 302 South Hicks Street Philadelphia, PA, 19102 United States (map)

Set deep in a Florida swamp, The Arsonists is a father-daughter tale of grief, loss, hope 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 life and death, the last breath before the awakening. The third play in Goldfinger's Southern Gothic trilogy, which began with the terrible girls and Skin & Bone, The Arsonists is currently a finalist for the Leah Ryan Prize.
