How To Build A Fire

How To Build A Fire

Earlier this year, writer Kat Sandler and the Brouhaha Theatre company in Toronto released this prestige radio drama, with support from the Koffler Center of the Arts. The format might be traditional, but the premise is contemporary, and immediately piqued our interest. To wit: a small fracking town in Alberta has done a deal with the devil, aka one Pembrooke Oil Corporation. When a local teenager sets himself alight and approaches the sheriff, burning andsmiling, before being shot dead, the town is horrified - but also not totally surprised that it's this kid who was involved. The kid, actually, is a twin, and his sister Maisey also has a history of showing up in places where fires start. Pembrooke sends a company goon to investigate - the slick, steel-eyed Mr Miller - and tensions escalate. A cast of professional actors deliver authentic performances, with the help of a strong script, and we were swept away over six 30-minute parts. [NB: We listened via Soundcloud, as the iTunes subscription link appeared to be down.]
