Love, sexuality, and the human reaction to urges and loss.

Hayley Powell's self-described “gay play,” In Which I Set Myself on Fire, focuses on a dying marriage and a contemporary reaction to urges and loss. This play delves into issues like HIV, relationships, and sexuality in our modern world. Fueled by alcohol, nicotine, and Catholic guilt, this is an examination of love, one of the great curses of living. 

In Which I Set Myself On Fire was originally produced at Northern Kentucky University as a part of the Studio 307 series for playwright Hayley Powell's culminating BFA project. This production utilizes (almost) the full cast and production team from the original production.



The Cincinnati Group Theatre was conceived in late 2012 by a group of young artists wishing to bring a new and unique voice to the Cincinnati theatre scene. The Cincinnati Group Theatre strives to produce new and thought-provoking works that examine the modern society in which we find ourselves. We believe strongly in the collaborative nature of the theatre and wish to bridge the gap between artistic mediums by incorporating practitioners from all artistic fields into our productions. We are committed to working with local artists who see the artistic potential for Cincinnati and wish to make this city their home.
