About this show

Crowded FIre Theater Company presents the world premiere of Sheila Callaghan's We Are Not These Hands, set in a fictional landscape where a river divides a prosperous country from one where war, poverty, and dictatorship have destroyed the infrastructure - with the exception of ubiquitous Internet cafes. Ever since their school blew up, teenagers Belly and Moth have spent their time peering through the windows of an illegal Internet Café hoping to cross over into the mysterious realms they can only glimpse on the screen. When Leather, a pampered scholar from the other side of the river, arrives to do research on their culture, the girls take particular interest in this strange man with a secret. As their relationship develops, the encounter threatens to explode their understanding of history and forge a connection that will save them all. Kent Nicholson directs.
