About this show

Skin in Flames is the story of a famous photojournalist who returns to the country where his career was launched during a brutal civil war. One photograph - of a schoolgirl flying through the air after a bomb explosion - has since become a world-renowned icon of war, violence, and innocence. While the photograph has become a household image, the girl has never been identified. Twenty years later, the photographer returns to the infant democracy to receive a prestigious peace award, but first must be interviewed by an ambitious young woman whose story seems eerily familiar. Following the 2nd and 3rd Tuesday and Wednesday performances, The InterAct Theatre Company invites patrons to grab a brownie and a cup of joe and join them for Coffee Conversations, an informal discussion with company artists. Coffee Conversations allows the audience to meet the real people behind the characters, ask questions, share their thoughts about what they saw, and hear the reactions of others. Following the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sunday matinee performances, InterAct Theatre Company presents Speaker Sundays, a talk-back series featuring invited scholars, community leaders and artists. Speaking from their area of expertise, each guest speaker offers unique insights into the world of the play, as well as the world in which we live.
