TREE OF FIRE Synopsis
When a Magnolia tree catches fire in an aged and ominous women’s prison, three female inmates forgotten and left to perish are jolted as their lives are threatened, into memories of their past that inform the truth of their souls and the urgent need to expose the inhumanity of the prison to the world.
We are so incredibly happy to announce there will be a Staged Reading of TREE OF FIRE on Thursday April 11, 2013 at Occidental College in honor of their Incarceration Awareness Week.
We have our cast for the March 2013 production at Inner City Arts' The Rosenthal Theater! TREE OF FIRE has the most phenomenal cast we could have dreamed of!
TREE OF FIRE: On the Move and in Production!
Our staged reading on Sunday, October 14, 2012 at Inner City Arts' Rosenthal Theater was a truly extraordinary evening. The actors were on fire, the audience was electric, and the wonderful staff of Inner City Arts were present including Dolores Chavez, Theater Director and Joseph Collins, CEO.
We now move into full production mode and are using the crowdfunding agent IndieGoGo to help reach our production budget. We need over $30,000 to bring this play to life, moving all those who experience it. We are asking for $10,000 as a base start to get us going. We are excited to open up an amazing opportunity for you to be a direct part of bringing this story to life. We offer a powerful play and some incredible rewards for your support of “Tree of Fire.”
After a four-year journey, we are excited to see Tree of Fire bloom into full production allowing artists and audiences to experience the powerful transmutation this play offers.
