Rebecca Naomi Jones and Enver Gjokaj star in Rinne Groff’s new play, now playing at the Public Theater.
In the video above, watch highlights from Fire in Dreamland, a new play by Rinne Groff which opens July 16 at The Public Theater Off-Broadway. Set in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy and inspired by the 1911 fire that burned down Coney Island’s Dreamland amusement park, the play tells a story about taking risks, falling in love, and our potential to create in the face of devastation.
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.
Performancesbegan June 19 and are scheduled through August 5 in The Public’s Anspacher Theater.
