The Arsonists By Jacqueline Goldfinger

Ridgefield Conservatory Of Dance
7/13/18 - 7/29/18


Thrown Stone presents the New England Premiere of The Arsonists, a new play by Jacqueline Goldfinger.

(Note: on Sun July 15, there is an additional performance at 7pm)

Set deep in a Florida swamp, The Arsonists is a father-daughter tale of grief, loss and redemption. Inspired by the Greek tragedy Electra, this play with music is a contemporary American myth that explores the relationship between parent and child in that small space between death and life, the last breath before the awakening.

“What makes The Arsonists so extraordinary is in part its contradictory oddness. It’s realistic and gritty, but also beautifully poetic; epic in scale…”
— Philadelphia Magazine

“Packs a strong punch…the play is edgy and thought-provoking…This is not a play for the faint of heart.”
— Broadway World

“Haunting, and atmospheric…The play exists on two planes, the real and the psychological, and Goldfinger leaves it to us to figure out whether we’re watching some fascinating aftermath of a crime or the torment in a woman’s mind. But that’s the dramatic pleasure of subtext: You get both.”
— The Philadelphia Inquirer

“Haunting and primal…earthy and otherworldly, acutely poignant, at times comic and often hair-raising…The Arsonists is a spine-chilling meditation on the age-old themes of life and death, the power that nature holds over humanity, and the ties that bind father to daughter.”
— DC Metro Arts

“A Love Poem…A Must See…It captures the largeness of life, of feeling, and how even after death you continue to sing the story of your ancestors, sometimes turning the daily pains into joy.”
— League of Cincinatti Theatres
