Burning Coal Theatre Company @ Murphey School
Burning Coal produces works that are felt and experienced viscerally, rather than more traditional linear plays that audiences often observe without participating. We present explosive reexaminations of overlooked classic and modern plays, as well as new plays whose themes and issues are of immediate concern to our audience. We work toward a theatre of high-energy performances and minimalist production values, using the best local, national and international artists available. Casting that is neither race or gender specific is an integral component of our perspective, as is an international viewpoint.
