When Lighting The Voids is a deconstructed mystery that explores the causes of a tragic explosion at an Escatawpa, Mississippi, shipyard in 2009. Constructed from interviews with OSHA investigators, shipyard workers, lawyers and family members of the deceased, the play explores not only what happened, but the trauma inflicted by the accident and the lives that continue to be affected to this day. As with all StoryWorks productions, the play adheres to verified and factual accounts in order to portray accurate reconstructions of real-world events.
