Fire in Dreamland is directed by Marissa Wolf and stars Rebecca Naomi Jones and Enver Gjokaj with Kyle Beltran.

In the new play, a disillusioned 30-something woman (Jones) falls for a visionary European filmmaker (Gjokaj) making a film about the 1911 fire that burned down Coney Island's Dreamland amusement park.

Performances began June 19 and are scheduled through August 5 in The Public’s Anspacher Theater.
