”They say the fire’s still burning. Beneath the ground. They say it could stay burning, for years.”
Punctuate! Theatre is pleased to present AFTER THE FIRE by MATTHEW MacKENZIE.
Set in the aftermath of the fire that nearly destroyed Fort McMurray in 2016, After the Fire is a dark comedy centred around two couples whose lives have been deeply affected by the disaster.
“After the Fire may have one of the greatest surprise endings ever in a Canadian play- and certainly has one of the most Canadian surprise endings ever to a play... It is also good writing that alters your perception of all of the characters, the state of their relationships - and maybe Fort McMurray as well.”
