News   PHOTO CALL: Adam Bock's A Small Fire, With Pawk, Birney, Keenan-Bolger, Williams, Opens Off-Broadway
 
A Small Fire, Adam Bock's play about a family wedding and its impact on the mother of the bride, opened Jan. 6 in its world premiere at Off-Broadway's Playwrights Horizons. Tony Award winner Michele Pawk stars as Mom.

Pawk (Broadway's Hollywood Arms) and Obie Award winner Reed Birney (Blasted, Circle Mirror Transformation) play parents to Tony nominee Celia Keenan-Bolger (PH's Saved and Broadway's Spelling Bee), while NAACP Award nominee Victor Williams (of TV's "The King of Queens") plays a construction manager who works for Pawk, whose workaholic character runs a construction firm.

Trip Cullman directs the production. Previews began Dec. 16, 2010, at PH's Mainstage Theater on West 42nd Street. The limited engagement will play through Jan. 23.

Here is a look at the opening night:

PH describes A Small Fire this way: "When a tough-as-nails contractor finds her senses slipping on the brink of her daughter's wedding, the impact on her family is nothing less than seismic. A Small Fire is a human parable in which unexpected loss leads to an unlikely love story."

The performance schedule is Tuesdays at 7 PM, Wednesdays through Fridays at 8 PM, Saturdays at 2:30 PM & 8 PM and Sundays at 2:30 PM & 7:30 PM.

Single tickets, $70, may be purchased online via www.TicketCentral.com, by phone at (212) 279-4200 (noon-8 PM daily), or in person at the Ticket Central Box Office, 416 W. 42nd Street (between Ninth & Tenth Avenues).
