Set over Labor Day Weekend in coastal New England, a middle-aged playwright invites longtime friend and legendary TV diva, Charlotte Christian, and occasionally working actor friend, Jay Mulch, to read his latest dramatic effort, "The Extinction of Fireflies", based on the epic romance of Roman Emperor Hadrian and his teenage lover Antinous. But when Jay brings along his new (and younger) lover Callisto, the feedback is spectacular and the fireworks begin to fly! The Extinction of Fireflies is written/directed by James Andrew Walsh, based on his play of the same title, and stars multi-award winner Michael Urie (Ugly Betty, Buyer & Cellar, Torch Song Trilogy), Olivier Award winner Tracie Bennett (End of the Rainbow, Follies), Drew Droege (Bob’s Burgers,Bright Colors and Bold Patterns), and Kario Marcel (Chicago Fire, Broad City).
