WHAT'S IN A NAME

Where did the name First Fight Theatre Company come from? Pictured is a postage stamp called "First Flight Wright Brothers 1903." It's a cool stamp! But the company was not named after the Wright Brothers flight. It was named after Maxwell Anderson's third Broadway production called First Flight, about young Andrew Jackson when he was a frontier lawyer and how he was trying to convince the soon to be West Virginia territory to become part of the United States of America. Our company is devoted to producing plays by Maxwell Anderson, specifically poetic dramas where poetry is part and parcel of the language spoken in the play. First Flight is a good name for a company with that poetic theatre agenda.
