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
