Presented by Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts - ECU

“Fires in the Mirror is quite simply, the most compelling and sophisticated view of racial and class conflict that one could hope to encounter.” – The New York Times.

There are three sides to every story: yours, mine and the truth. Crown Heights, Brooklyn in the summer of 1991 is a community of roiling racial tensions.

When a young Jewish driver accidentally kills a black child, riots erupt. As violence explodes on the streets, a 29-year-old Orthodox Jewish scholar from Australia is fatally stabbed by a gang of black youths.

Fires in the Mirror: Crown Heights, Brooklyn and Other Identities, created from interviews with over 50 members of the Jewish and black communities, translates their voices verbatim into a Drama Desk award-winning play that revolutionised the genre of documentary theatre.
