This literate family drama by Jon Robin Baitz, a Pulitzer Prize nominee for 2011's Other Desert Cities, boasts a strong ensemble cast led by award-winning stage and TV actor John Noble (Fringe, Sleepy Hollow). The Substance of Fire finds the proud head of a fading publishing house facing off against his three adult children, who're trying to convince him to release a commercially-successful novel, versus the imprint's usual esoteric material, in a desperate bid to keep the failing family business from going down in flames. Co-starring are Halley Feiffer (You Can Count on Me), Daniel Eric Gold (Ugly Betty), Carter Hudson and the Obie-winning Charlayne Woodard (The Witch of Edmonton, In the Blood). Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“Firecrackers of revelation explode every few minutes in Becky Shaw, which is almost as quotably funny as Broadway’s scabrous August: Osage County — and that’s saying plenty.” —New York Times
In Gina Gionfriddo’s (After Ashley) wicked new comedy Becky Shaw, a newlywed couple fixes up two romantically challenged friends: wife’s best friend, meet husband’s sexy and strange new co-worker. When an evening calculated to bring happiness takes a dark turn, crisis and comedy ensue in this wickedly funny new play that asks what we owe the people we love and the strangers who land on our doorstep.
p. Directed by Peter DuBois. Starring David Wilson Barnes, Emily Bergl, Kelly Bishop, Annie Parisse, Thomas Sadoski.
