Fire!, a new play festival, opens August 6 at 7 p.m. at South Oxford Space, 138 South Oxford Street in Fort Greene.
The festival, developed by Freedom Train Productions, debuts with Sharon Bridgforths “Delta Dandi,” which plays August 6-7, followed by “When Last We Flew” by Harrison David Rivers, August 13-14. “While Submerged From All Sides” by Aurin Squire closes the festival August 20-21. All performances are at 7 p.m. and all performances are free.
Launched in 2006, Freedom Train Productions stages new political theater that challenges audiences to see character struggle from new perspectives: Black lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) protagonists.
“Delta Dandi” is about a Black blues/conjure woman musician traveling with a jazz band in the 1940s at the height of the birth of modern jazz. Rivers work explores color perception and privilege. Squire bravely presents a personal drama of overcoming sex addiction inside a sex-phobic US society and within a sex-positive queer community.
