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

Read an "interview ":http://www.2st.com/index.php?option=com_plays&task=viewPlay&Itemid=0&id=140&saction=intwith playwright Lynn Nottage.
In a new comedy from the Pulitzer-Prize winning playwright of Ruined, Lynn Nottage draws upon the screwball films of the 1930s to take a funny and irreverent look at racial stereotypes in Hollywood. _By the Way, Meet Vera Stark _is a seventy year journey through the life of Vera Stark, a headstrong African-American maid and budding actress, and her tangled relationship with her boss, a white Hollywood star desperately grasping to hold on to her career. When circumstances collide and both women land roles in the same Southern epic, the story behind the cameras leaves Vera with a surprising and controversial legacy scholars will debate for years to come.
