Everyone says that the first three months of college are the hardest, that if you can survive them, you’re in the clear. But what happens when you have to return home and confront everything you left behind? A group of girlfriends, inseparable since sixth grade, grapple with what it means to move forward, grow up, and let go while still leaving room in their lives for those who had such a profound impact on who they are today. They are forced to confront the sometimes alarming truth of what has changed and what hasn’t at their first annual “Friendsgiving”.
Mina is a 12 year old girl with SO MANY questions (What is a penis? How to boil a frog? Is the world ending?) but very little answers. With her older sister off to college and her best friend in a relationship, she is left with just her stuffed animals to talk to. FIREBEETLES!!! is a play about growing up, staying young, feeling small in an overwhelming world, and, naturally, fireflies.
