Billed as "an original work that weaves together collective hysteria, ritualistic frenzy, California Spiritual Extremism, and the mystic rites of ancient Greece," Five Small Fires lights up the stage, courtesy of the acclaimed experimental performance ensemble known as Poor Dog Group. Set at a community center, a dark secret among revolutionaries from a New Age movement sparks an internal conflict that leads to a series of life tests, which are broadcast online, and ultimately result in a community connected through celebratory dance, ritual and "radical apocalyptic anarchy."

GO! This writer/performer gives a very powerful and fresh take on many topics surrounding the iconic/mythic subject of Mr. King. An immersive experience (forgive the term) - so just let yourself be drawn in to this memory/nightmare/dream experience. And don't come even 2 seconds late - like the four bozos who were allowed to so rudely break the spell already being cast by Mr. Smith. Also, if you don't want to stay and listen to the words of the closing music, as you are invited to - please be polite enough to take your conversations out of the theatre. Honestly.
There's a Q&A after Sunday matinee performances.
