The second play, a Virginia Theatre Association Conference (VTA) one-act, is called “The Firebugs.” According to theater director David Becker, the play examines the idea of complacency in the face of danger.
“It’s a timeless piece,” said Becker. “I think it is a really powerful production that really resonates especially well now, but has resonated ever since it was written in 1953.” For more, click here to view Mr. Becker’s commentary on “The Firebugs.”
