But with Fire-Bringer, an additional topic for the talk-back has emerged.
“When I talk about this play to people, they often tell me their stories about wild fires in this area,” said Margaret Kelso. “Someone told me about driving down 101 from Crescent City and there were fires on both sides of the highway. Someone else talked about driving recently on 299 and seeing the fires, seeing firefighters black from the smoke, just dragging themselves into the tents where they sleep. So I think there are a lot of stories that people are interested in sharing, and this talk-back could be a way to explore these stories, too.”
