Starting Flames

. May 16, 2012.

The New Theatre Project enters 2012 by exploring two very contemporary themes—the Great Recession and sex in the digital age, in their production of critically acclaimed up and coming playwright Kevin Kautzman's If You Start a Fire [Be Prepared to Burn]. The story fallows a young twenty-something couple, Chris and Lucy, as they navigate through the recession with dead end jobs that they need to keep to maintain healthcare coverage. When Chris loses his job the two decide to start an internet porn site and the strains of voyeurism, love and money all collide. $15, $10 students, seniors, industry. Shows run Fridays-Sundays, February 10-March 4, 8pm. Pay-what-you-can previews run on February 10-12, 8pm. Mix Studio Theater, 130 W. Michigan Ave., Ypsilanti. 734-645-9776. www.thenewtheatreproject.org
