The first major character in American Theatre Company’s production of “Wait Until Dark” is on stage long before the show begins.
John and Emily’s well-ordered, middle-class life together is strangely upended when Emily begins, one by one, to lose her senses. Smell, taste, sight, and hearing mysteriously disappear, until touch is all she has to perceive the world around her. “Raucous, funny and unexpectedly touching.” The New York Times.
Challlenging, moving, and ultimately hopeful, A Small Fire resonates long after the final curtain comes down. Playing off-Broadway in 2011, it makes it's Tulsa debut April 5 at Heller Theatre.
