AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE (TICKETS ON SALE)
There’s something in the water. In a small town finally on the brink of an economic boom, the discovery of dangerous bacteria in the water supply threatens to tear the community apart. For the second Summer of Power production, Firebird revisits Ibsen's trenchant portrayal of a whistleblower willing to speak the unpalatable truth.

JULIUS CAESAR (NOW CLOSED)
"Ordinance and first decree turns to the law of children" in this bright and wild new staging of the classic tragedy, which places the events of Julius Caesar in a vast playroom full of kids. The citizens of ROAM, a city-state founded in the eerie absence of adult supervision, navigate the trials of running a society, grappling with questions of power and authority. The raw and bloody spirit of Shakespeare's text haunts this dark childish fantasy, pushing its newly-incarnated characters toward their ambitions.
Julius Caesar performed a sold-out run at Downtown Art, July 19-20th.
