How to Build a Fire
About This Show
Show Info: THE STORY: In the small fracking town of Winnisk, Alberta, it’s always been better to blend in. But there’s always been something off about the Goodhand twins, Maisey and Sirus. On their sixteenth birthday, a mysterious blaze destroys half the town and Sirus is shot and killed. The sheriff claimed Sirus was running at her. She said he was on fire. She said he was smiling. Paranoia begins to grip the town as a mysterious stranger employed by the fracking corporation, Pembrooke Oil, arrives and begins asking deep and probing questions that stir up old secrets. When a series of seemingly accidental fires begin to flare in Maisey’s wake, hysteria takes hold…how far will the people of Winnisk go to stop history from repeating itself? ***WARNING: CONTAINS STRONG LANGUAGE*** The Koffler Centre of the Arts presents How to Build a Fire: an original six-part radio play by Kat Sandler, with new episodes released weekly.
