FEATURES / CONTAINS

Exterior Set

Five construction workers, three black and two white, labor in the heat on a site in Ocean City, Maryland, as distant fires smolder from race riots in a nearby neighborhood. Two of the workers are in competition for a coveted union job. Which man wins the job illuminates the racial and class distinctions dividing America today. "…a searing examination of racism that doesn't ignore the thorny complexities of self-hate and prejudice. DISTANT FIRES is written with a canny grasp of street language. Heelan's toughness is sometimes startling in its simplicity…" —Variety. "Quietly, DISTANT FIRES raises sobering questions about racism in the work place and about the roots of urban violence…In the Mamet tradition, the dialogue is pithy and profane and filled with a sidewalk spontaneity. The play moves effortlessly from amusing working class conversation to an atmosphere that is highly charged with conflicting points of view." —NY Times .
