Troy Foundry Offers World Premiere of “Where There’s Smoke: Ilium Burns”

TROY — Troy Foundry Theatre is once again devising a world-premiere piece of theatre using the City of Troy and its unique history as a narrative backdrop. Inspired by the events and the social context surrounding the Great Fire of 1862, Where There’s Smoke: Ilium Burns will bring the audience into an immersive world of American cataclysms, both internal and external with characters spanning from the Civil War to the Present Day using the historic Trojan Hotel (41 3rd St. Troy, NY 12180) as their playground.

Step inside. Fall into our stories. Live the last before the last. We are all made of the same cosmic dust. We exist in cycles of order and disorder, exchanging energy. But, like the dying embers of a fire, the last drink of a long night, or the eventual burnout of our sun, everything must come to an end.
