Genre: Drama
Written By Lanford Wilson, Directed By Laura Standley

BURN THIS explores the complexities of loss, and the healing powers of art and love. The place is a Manhattan loft in the 80's, shared by Anna, a dancer-chreographer, Robby who has just been killed in a freak boating accident, and Larry, a world-weary, caustically funny young advertising executive. As Anna attempts to recover from the loss of Robby, Pale bursts onto the scene. He is Robby's older brother, come to collect his belongings, but stays on to transform the action of the play, and the lives of those in it. Menacing, profane, dangerous, and yet oddly sensitive, Pale is both terrifying and fascinating and, in the end, the one who brings Anna the unsettling but complelling love that, despie her fears and doubts, she cannot turn away.
