About this show

Somewhere in the Jim Crow South, the sky is on fire. A pregnant Olivia's fierce speech writing is the sole force behind her charismatic husband, Charles, and his successful movement to galvanize people to march towards freedom. When four little girls are bombed in a church, Olivia and Charles's marriage is threatened — as this tragedy and years of civil unrest leave Olivia believing that "this world ain't no place to raise a colored child."

Fireflies, directed by Saheem Ali (Sugar in Our Wounds), is a startling world premiere by Donja R. Love and the second part of a trilogy beginning with Sugar in Our Wounds.
