The Arsonists

The Arsonists Cover

Jacqueline Goldfinger


Samuel French

“This high-voltage start to Jacqueline Goldfinger’s spellbinding new play, The Arsonists, put me in mind of a kind of gender-reversed Sam Shepard—especially Shepard’s early collaborative work with Patti Smith. (The Arsonists also incorporates mournful songs and hymns, delivered with piercing authenticity by Gliko and Steven Rishard, playing “H.”)  As in Shepard, there is a sense that love, loss, and betrayal are inseparable.” — David Fox, Philadelphia Magazine
