World-premiere performance by local Asheville playwright!
“A single spark can start a prairie fire,” noted Chairman Mao. In a board room high above a city in revolt, a noble band of executives soldier bravely forward through the 9 o’clock meeting. Rioting and bloodshed will do nothing to deter these proud corporate warriors from bearing witness to the quarterly report. In that well-furnished fiery crucible of profit margins and cost analysis, these three VP’s will reexamine the importance of capitalist values in a world gone mad. Prairie Fire is an absurdist dark comedy inspired by the writings of The Weather Underground.
