Firehouse’s Desire Under the Elms: 2 tours available!


All this and more will be featured in Eugene O’Neill’s masterpiece, Desire Under the Elms. This searing drama will wrap you in its hypnotic, violent story and leave you with many intense images that you’ll be talking about for weeks afterwards.

Directed by Josh Chenard and featuring an award-winning cast of Richmond favorites, this production may be one of your only chance to see this singular but not-often-produced classic enacted onstage.

Grounded in the Greek tragedy Hippolytus, this is the perfect kind of show that you’ll want to go Behind-the-Scenes with. We’ll talk about the history of the show as well as delve into Eugene O’Neill’s amazing legacy. Then you’ll have a chance to talk with director Josh Chenard about what makes this production so special.

This will be the first BTS experience that is catered onsite (thanks to the awesome restaurant / food truck, Kitchenette), so you can park once, enjoy dinner and conversation and then be entertained by the show. Afterwards, stick around for an exclusive tour and post-show chat with the cast of the show.

Only two tours will be offered during the run of this show so act now! Click on the image below or go to our “Shop” page.


A “Dinner w/ the director” opportunity!

We’re only offering one Behind-the-Scenes tour for Cloud 9, and this one is extra-special — you will be dining with the show’s director Rusty Wilson. Only 6 spots are available for this unique opportunity on Friday, October 20th — click here to buy now!

A wacky sex farce or a thoughtful exploration of changing gender roles and sexuality? Cloud 9 is both, and the critics are expressing their appreciation of this clever mash-up. “Cloud 9 is a play for those who want laughter but also something to think about on the way home,” says Julinda Lewis in the Richmond Times-Dispatch (full review here.) Jerry Williams at Sifter calls it “…a jolly good romp; this ensemble is doing uniformly excellent work.” (full review here.)

What better way to enjoy this complex production than to go Behind-the-Scenes? Get the historical background on this show that is — surprisingly! — almost 40 years old. Enjoy an in-depth talk with director Rusty Wilson about why this play remains as vital and relevant today as it was in the 1970s.

The tour comes complete with a three-course dinner at Fat Dragon only 2 blocks from the theater. Each performance features an exclusive backstage tour and reserved seating at the show.
