Award-winning Bay Area playwright Lauren Gunderson's latest heartfelt and witty romantic comedy revolves around the smoldering chemistry between a headstrong young woman and a guy she meets while working at her father's fireworks shop. But their budding relationship is threatened when a bomb goes off in town, lighting the fuse on a powder keg of tension between the two. Lauren Gunderson won the 2014 Steinberg/ATCA New Play award and was a finalist for the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize for her hit show I and You. Fire Work is presented by TheatreFIRST, producers of this spring's popular Escanaba in da Moonlight. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“Simplicity is magical in Orlando. That’s as true for Sarah Ruhl’s lovingly crafted adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s time-bending, gender-shifting novel as it is for Woolf’s mesmerizing prose. In the TheatreFirst Orlando … the simple directness of staging and acting work an incremental wonder all their own.” -San Francisco Chronicle;
_"_Ruhl’s adaptation beautifully captures the spare eloquence of Woolf’s language from the novel … Director Domenique Lozano gives the play a graceful and sparkling staging with a strong cast." -KQED
“Admirers of Woolf and Ruhl will be very happy with this production, as will anybody looking for a good time, lots of laughter, and something to think about.” -theatrestorm.com
“(Domenique) Lozano has directed the show in a fast-paced combination of dance and slapstick … and the half-dozen in the cast perform all that’s demanded of them beautifully for the astoundingly rapid hour-and-45-minutes the show plays.” -San Jose Mercury News
A magical night of theatre directed by TheatreFirst, ACT and Cal Shakes Associate Artist, Domenique Lozano (ACT’s A Christmas Carol, TheatreFirst’s The Drawer Boy) and produced by TheatreFirst, one of the Bay Area’s preeminent new works companies.
