OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Declan Hughes 

  • Synopsis

    Digging for Fire is set during the reunion party of a group of almost-thirty-somethings. Seven old friends from the class of '83 get together to talk about old times. But nostalgia is no match for disillusionment, and as the drink takes hold the true events of their past emerge and the reunion falls apart with chilling and unexpected savagery.
