Mill Fire By Sally Nemeth: A Play Reading Series
Monday, May 21 at 7pm

The Underdog Theater proudly presents Mill Fire by Sally Nemeth: A Play Reading Series MILL FIRE explores the life of a young headstrong widow as she navigates through the after math of a steel mill explosion.

“MILL FIRE is a tense, brooding piece, a cross between a thriller, a social documentary and a requiem … Nemeth’s subject is pain, whose precise causes may never be known, and she draws its map like a cartographer of hell.” -Hugo Williams, The Times (London)
