Resonance's artistic direct Eric Parness directs the Gorky while Leland Patton helms the Mee.
The mixing of old and new work fits in with Resonance's mission, which is "to weave a thread between the theatre's past, present, and "to nurture timeless and universal new works that resonate today."
Time to Burn is fashioned as a contemporary response to the 1902 Gorky work, which famously depicts the lives of a group of desperate and hopeless characters. Mee describes Burn as "a conversation with Maxim Gorky about what he hoped for when he wrote that play...and what has happened since."
The casts of The Lower Depths and Time To Burn feature Christopher Burris, Kristin Stewart Chase, Al Choy, Sean Dill, Loris Diran, Ledger Free, Nicole Godino, Tran T. Truc Hanh, Emily Laochua, Aaron Lisman, Patrick Melville, Ian Pfister, Annette Previti, Stu Richel, Lou Tally, Elisa Terrazas, Martha Tompoulidou, Martin Treat, Stewart Walker, James T.
