Burn This by Lanford Wilson
Aug 2 - Sept 2

Lanford Wilson's "Burn This" opens at Performance Network on August 2nd, 2012 starring Quetta Carpenter and Darrel Glasgow directed by Ray Schultz. Purchase tickets here!

Robbie was a brilliant dancer who tragically died with his partner in a boating accident. The play begins immediately following his funeral as his roommates, Anna and Larry grieve their loss. The play is set in 1980's New York.
Anna, a choreographer, struggles with the death of her fellow dancer as his older brother, Pale shows up to gather his belongings. Anna listens to Pale tell a few colorful stories with his wicked tongue and determines there is more to him than meets the eye. The sexy couple share a quick-heated-passion for one another and Pale re-inspires Anna's choreography.
The show is for anyone who has ever loved or lost another person. "Burn This" appeared on Broadway and is a favorite among regional theatres. 
Show opens August 2nd and runs through September 2nd. Get your tickets today!
