Fires in the Mirror

By Anna Deavere Smith
Directed by Bridget O'Leary

April 12-14 and 19-21, 2018 at 8:00 pm

Written by acclaimed actress, author, and playwright Anna Deavere Smith, Fires in the Mirror is an exploration of racial and cultural identity told verbatim through the accounts of over two dozen eyewitness, community leaders, and victims of the events that occurred in Crown Heights Brooklyn in August of 1991. This play is a conversation about the tensions and divides in our country. Smith's play takes a complicated issue and examines it from all sides of the story – leaving us with more questions than answers and putting it on the audience to keep the conversation going.
