A Play by Jacqueline Goldfinger.
The Arsonists is a lyrical Southern Gothic tale inspired by Electra about a father-daughter arson team who escapes to the Florida Everglades. It's a provocative journey from grief to redemption that delves into the primal bond between parent and child, and explores if that bond can ever truly be broken.
