Royal Family Productions has announced Women on Fire: Scorching the Dividing Lines, coming to the Royal Family Performing Arts Space for two nights on October 20 and 21.

Written by Royal Family's artistic director Chris Henry as told by a group of anonymous women, the show is the second installment of the Women on Fire series and is said to "dig even deeper into questions on the current 'State of Our Union' as America heads into midterm elections." All proceeds will benefit Royal Family's Emerging Artist Program.

The cast will feature Tony nominee Kathleen Chalfant (Angels in America), Maddie Corman (Picnic), Constance Shulman (Orange Is the New Black), Cynthia Mace (Safe Home), and Laila Robbins (Heartbreak House). Further casting will be announced at a later date.

The creative team includes Cheyenne Sykes (lighting, scenic, and costume design) and Lorna Ventura (choreographer).
