Quotes & Highlights
Based in part on the shooting of Amadou Diallo in the Bronx in 1999.
Laura Coker in association with the Whitefire Theatre presents the world premiere of Firehouse by award-winning playwright, Pedro Antonio Garcia, directed by Bryan Rasmussen, consulting producer Robert “Bobby” Moresco (co-writer of Crash).
Based on true events, this life and death story of the moral choices of firemen explodes when a young girl dies and the firehouse is blamed.
Firehouse is a re-examination of the Amadou Diallo issue set inside a South Bronx firehouse. A probationary, rookie fireman responds to a fire rescuing a veteran firefighter, in lieu of a 12 year-old girl, who dies as a result. The community is outraged; mass demonstrations ensue. The rookie fireman, a former cop who had previously been tried and acquitted – along with three other cops - for the murder of an unarmed Puerto Rican, claims to have not seen the young girl.
Is the rookie fireman telling the truth, or is this a case of a cover-up involving race?
Cast: Kamar de los Reyes, Gerald Downey, Jossara Jinaro, Ed Morrone, Elvis Nolasco, Bryan Rasmussen, and Jon Southwell
