Q&A with Creative Team of Emergency Used Candles

This coming Thursday, November 18th we present you with a Q&A following the 7pm performance of Emergency Used Candles. Meet writer/performer Chiara Montalto and director Victoria Malvagno as they discuss their process and how this solo piece began with our bareNaked Reading Series...

"Good theater, at its most basic, should simultaneously accomplish two things: entertain and enlighten the audience. And by the time Montalto’s piece of theater had ended, she had more than accomplished both. Plays don’t need to be two-and-a-half hours long, with a 10-minute intermission to be effective. Sometimes, all you need is a barebones set and a story worth hearing. You’ll find both at Emergency Used Candles." NY PRESS

Barefoot Theatre Company - now in its 12th season Off-Broadway - will present the world-premiere of Chiara Montalto's play EMERGENCY USED CANDLES, with previews beginning November 3 and a press opening night set for November 6 at the Studio Theatre (38 Commerce St.) at Cherry Lane Theatre in Manhattan. LIMITED RUN ONLY!!!!

EMERGENCY USED CANDLES is a tale set in Brooklyn about the profound effect a grandfather and his granddaughter have on each other as one's life is ending while the other's is just beginning. Written and performed by Chiara Montalto, EMERGENCY USED CANDLES is based on the playwright's own experience growing up as a caretaker to her grandfather.

EMERGENCY USED CANDLES is directed by Victoria Malvagno. Sound design is by Eric Nightengale, production design is by Tom Lenz, lighting design by Josh Iacovelli, and costume design by Ms. Malvagno.
