Soul Fire shares the stories of San Diegans who immigrated from Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Sudan, Vietnam, China, Haiti, and Poland. Playwright Lisa Kirazian wove together over a dozen interviews to create Soul Fire, which was originally produced in 2004 as a collaboration between Playwrights Project and The City of San Diego Public Library.

This inaugural production of Playwrights Project's Mosaic program, which features professional productions of plays drawn from underserved communities. Mosaic honors the spirit of Mo'olelo supporters, who supported Mo'olelo's work before it closed its doors.

"Stirring, affecting... these stories will break your heart and make you think differently about your own life."
-Pat Launer, San Diego Theatre Critic
