The Extinction of Fireflies is set over Labor Day Weekend in New England, when James (Droege), a self-imagined playwright, invites longtime friend, TV diva Charlotte Christian (Bennett), and occasionally-working actor Jay (Urie) to read his latest dramatic effort. Jay brings along his new (and younger) lover Callisto (Marcel).

The Extinction of Fireflies is executive-produced by Kimberly Chesser for When All The World’s A Stage, a subsidiary of Walsh’s Rhode Trip Pictures. Streaming dates and ticketing information will be announced at a later date.
