About this show

The play takes place on November 28, 1942, almost one year after the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and the night of one of the deadliest fires in US history. On this particular night, Boston was alive with excitement as Boston College battled arch rival Holy Cross College on the football field. Cocoanut Grove, the popular, swank Boston nightclub, was hopping with nearly 1,000 people: students fresh from the game, servicemen on a weekend pass, newlyweds celebrating the beginning of their new lives, and even a Hollywood star making the rounds to promote his upcoming film. In the midst of such gaiety, who could have predicted that a split-second mistake and greed could spark an inferno that would claim 492 lives, changing fire code safety forever?
