GEOMETRY OF FIRE

Genre: Drama
By Stephen Belber

In Geometry of Fire, Belber's newest work, we find an investment banker-turned-Marine-sniper recently returned from Iraq and a Saudi-American who just wants to get laid. In any other world, these two guys would be best friends. But when their lives collide in this one, each is forced to survive on the fly. Based on a true story. Geometry of Fire had a developmental production at New York Stage & Film in July 2007.

Rattlestick Playwrights Theater (David Van Asselt, Artistic Director and Sandra Coudert, Managing Director) continues its 14th anniversary season with the World Premiere of Geometry of Fire, a new drama by Stephen Belber, directed by Lucie Tiberghien (The Pavilion). Mr. Belber is currently represented in New York by the acclaimed Naked Angels production of Fault Lines at the Cherry Lane Theatre.

The cast of Geometry of Fire includes Jeffrey DeMunn, Donnie Keshawarz, Jennifer Mudge, and Kevin O'Donnell.
