The Magic Fire

About the Show

Performance Info: Performances will take place at Unity Somerville in Davis Square, November 10–18, 2017.

About the Play: The Magic Fire is a memory play set in Buenos Aires in 1952. The play focuses on Lise, a young girl in a lively intellectual family of immigrants from Austria and Italy, whose common interest is opera. As an adult, Lise looks back on her childhood memories and tries to understand them in light of what she now understands was happening at the time.
