The Hipp Unplugged: Fireflies
January 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
One event on January 14, 2020 at 7:30pm
The Hippodrome Theatre is excited to announce the fifth production in our Hipp Unplugged reading series: Fireflies, written by Donja R. Love and directed by Ryan Hope Travis.
January 13 & 14 at 7:30 p.m.
“I was moved by Mr. Love’s willingness to imagine, amid the terror of the times…other kinds of lives than the ones that history books offer.” —The New York Times.
“A jaw-dropping and explosively dramatic two-hander…a powerful tale of love flashing its light in the dark…FIREFLIES is a drama of extraordinary depth and complexity…Love thrillingly crafts an intimate story that comes to feel cosmic in its enormity by the end.” —TheaterMania.com.
The Hipp Unplugged aims to bring Gainesville even more great theater that is more challenging than what we would be able to display with our regular mainstage season. With this series, we hope to also give a voice to underrepresented playwrights and provide our company and artistic community a place to come together and grow.
