Luna Stage Presents Mercy and the Firefly

Luna Stage presents MERCY AND THE FIREFLY by Amy Hartman and directed by Cheryl Katz. Soaring prose and aching emotion stalk this powerful new play in which a woman drives non-stop from LA to Pittsburgh, back to the home she fled. She returns with a spirit in need, a troubled girl, and a secret that could endanger those who love her.

Developed as part of Luna Stage’s new play program, Mercy and the Firefly is a story of finding forgiveness, even in the midst of darkness. Starring Alicia Riva, Marcie Henderson, Christopher Daftsios, and Andrea Gallo.

Previews take place February 10 – 17. Show officially opens February 18 and runs through March 13, 2011. Shows are on Thursdays at 7:30pm, Fridays & Saturdays at 8:00pm, and Sundays at 2:00pm. Admission for the previews is $20; regular performances for Thursdays/Fridays/Sundays are $25 and Saturdays $30.

The Luna Stage is located at 555 Valley Road in West Orange NJ. Call 973-395-5551 or visit for further information and reservations. Luna Stage is wheelchair accessible.
