In News, Plays, Schedule on November 30, 2011 at 8:21 PM

Directed by Braden Abraham (Seattle Rep’s BETRAYAL and MY NAME IS RACHEL CORRIE), WHITE HOT is a searing domestic potboiler about the tragedy of marriage and hopelessness of love.  Tempted by flaming desire, a young family systematically obliterates all faith in each other and themselves, causing terrible acts of injustice, madness and death.

featuring Hannah Victoria Franklin, Kimberly Sustad and Ray Tagavilla. design by Jennifer Zeyl (costumes), Andrea Bush (sets) and Jessica Trundy (lights)

“[Tommy Smith] is writing in the shadow of our most daring and politically incendiary of martyred playwright saints, Sarah Kane and Edward Bond … WHITE HOT is bleak terrain, a buried cesspool of self-loathing and unseemly, sadistic yearnings in love. The play can be read as a critique of the deadening fallout of our reactionary, materialistic, exploitative and soulless era. It can be read as a bad dream or a soap opera about the banality of evil. However you read it, it doesn’t go down easy.”

– Craig Lucas, New York Theatre Review
