About this show

Slowly I Turned Productions and the Whitefire Theatre present a world-premiere drama Fire in the Dark House, about two star-crossed young lovers, their families, and community, all thrown into turmoil as anti-immigrant fervor sweeps the nation during World War I. The play is created by Mona Z. Smith and Traci Mariano.

Fire in the Dark House is a poignant wartime romance about a passionate young woman who falls for the son of a powerful newspaper publisher who is waging a dangerous propaganda campaign against immigrant families, including her own. Drawing inspiration from historical events, the play explores themes that resonate strongly today and asks us to consider what it means to be an American, an immigrant, a young Dreamer, and a patriot.
