Kansas City Repertory Theatre recently announced that FIRE IN DREAMLAND has been added to the 2017-2018 season at The Public Theater in New York City.
The production will be directed by the KC Rep’s Director of New Works Marissa Wolf, and marks the third OriginKC: New Works production that has gone on to be produced at The Public Theater.
Commissioned by Berkeley Rep and The Public Theater, FIRE IN DREAMLAND, written by Rinne Groff, is set on Coney Island, in the aftermath of 2012’s Superstorm Sandy. It explores the astonishing things we do when faced with devastation.
“In collaboration with Artistic Director Eric Rosen, I’m thrilled to champion vital, urgent and nationally recognized plays and musicals under the umbrella of OriginKC, forwarding Kansas City as a major national center for the development and production of new work,” says Wolf. “FIRE IN DREAMLAND was among the very first new plays we produced here under the auspices of the New Works Festival, and Kansas City has become part of the play’s DNA.”
