Flame in the Mirror is a work of power and poetry from local playwright John Ruoff that explores lust for success, fear of loss and everything it is to be Irish in America.

Charlie Terry is losing his family… At the turn of the 20th Century, in a mining town in Montana that he and his brother all but created, Irish Immigrant Charlie is watching as the life he’s built comes slowly crumbling down around him.
