The Fires by Jennifer Rumberger

Presented as part of The Gift Theatre’s In The Works series, curated by Co-Artistic Director Brittany Burch.

Jennifer Rumberger (The Locusts) is returning to The Gift for a one-time reading of her latest play, THE FIRES.

Two men sit outside a 7/11 in downtown Los Angeles, watching a wildfire come closer and closer, the latest in a series of natural catastrophes that have caused massive casualties all over the United States. Other than a traveling newsman bringing stories of the fates of other Americans, they are the last people alive.  As the fire gets closer, they are forced to contend with the end of not only their relationship, but their lives as well.



John Gawlik (Meatball), Paul D’Addario (Arthur), Michael Turrentine (Reginald)


The Fires will be performed at Filament Theatre
