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

I think the actors were exceptional and spoke with deep intellect. It was different from other plays I've seen. Because of the title, I was expecting some musical dance and song along with the plot, but it was mainly about the record songs played and about introducing the new group bands like the Plastics and others. I really enjoyed the story and actors. Thank you!

I just went to see The Arsonists in the Aurora Theater. It was boring... Then I decided to bring my friend to see Rock and Roll, we loved it!! I think these guys worked so hard to bring this performance to life. This is not an easy playfull comedy...continued
