About: There Shall Be Fireworks

A story from Afghanistan about a plan to change the world.

Inspired by the path to Afghanistan, well trodden down the ages whether by Western merchants, missionaries, hippies or soldiers, There Shall Be Fireworks unearths a startling true story from a 200-year-old cemetery in Kabul known as the Kabre Gora ('the Graveyard of Foreigners').

It's a send off.

An American stockbroker turned statesman, thwarted in one wildly ambitious plan to change the world for good, bids farewell once again to the land that he loves. A haunting new show full of hope and misadventure, There Shall Be Fireworks is about being possessed by an idea, and the mortality of human endeavour.

This production is supported by the New Diorama Emerging Companies Fund.
