A touching play about the effects of the 2003 bush fires in Victoria's North East and Gippsland, and the fighting spirit of small communities.

Drawn from the real life stories of those involved, the play includes over 50 characters played by an ensemble of seven. Gripping, lyrical, comically overwrought when it seems tragic, and deeply moving when all appears lost. Embers is the story of a fire - and the people who conquered it.

"An absorbing, character-rich and sometimes stirring piece about a near-forgotten patch of Australia; and the grit and courage of ordinary folk.." - Sydney Morning Herald.
