Burn This

BCA Plaza Black Box Theatre, 539 Tremont Street

April 18 – April 21 2024

If it doesn’t set your soul on fire, it isn’t worth the burn!

She’s lost her muse and he’s lost his way!  Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lanford Wilson ignites the stage with this caustically funny exploration of life, loss, mourning and moving on. In this Tony-nominated masterpiece, Anna, a gifted dancer, is grappling with the artistic and personal void left by the untimely death of her roommate and creative partner Robbie. Enter Pale, Robbie’s fiery older brother, whose unexpected intrusion ignites an unanticipated explosive dance of love, laughter, and longing between two seemingly incompatible strangers.

Written by: Lanford Wilson

Directed by: Daniel Bourque
