ABOUT THE SHOW:
A Rekindled Flame tells the story of Rolf and Rebekah, two teenagers who fall in love in pre-World War II Germany. The couple are separated when Rebekah, who is Jewish, is sent to England by her parents to ensure her safety. Through a remarkable set of circumstances, the two are reunited 60 years later at a retirement home in Florida.
"One of the neat things about having your play go through the creative process would have to be having your story understood through the different filters of those involved," says playwright Garry Lee Posey. "Flame started as a simple exploration of love, filial and romantic, casual and dearly. When Caren and I met in the beginning of the process, she saw the central message to be about the redemptive power of love. When revising, I totally saw that and used it in the edits."
