Set in the Jim Crow South, “Fireflies” tells the story of Olivia, the inspiring speechwriter and force behind her charismatic husband Charles and his freedom movement. When four little girls are bombed in a church, the couple’s relationship is thrown into jeopardy as Olivia begins to believe “this world ain’t no place to raise a colored child.” This intimate performance allows viewers to experience the powerful drama from Olivia’s female-led perspective.
