The Arsonists

The Court Theatre

M and H are master arsonists who never get it wrong – until they do. 

Covered in ash, M hacks into the ground to bury their biggest secret yet: H’s burnt body.

As M plucks at the strings of her father’s guitar, playing the songs of her childhood, H claws his way back – which means something must be unfinished.

Full of haunting music performed live on stage, The Arsonists explores the bond between parent and child in this swelling, poetic drama.
