On March 25th, 1911, in just a few short minutes, over one hundred and forty lives were abruptly extinguished when three floors of the Triangle Waist Company were consumed in fire. Most of the casualties were female immigrants who had come to America to start new lives for themselves and for their families. 'Fire' dramatically interweaves fictionalized stories about these young transplants with actual testimony from the trial against the owners of the factory. It poetically explores the theme of avarice juxtaposed against the dream of living in a new land and all the promise that goes along with it.
