What: Set in the bohemian arts world of downtown New York, Lanford Wilson's Burn This explores
the spiritual and emotional isolation of Anna and Pale, two outcasts
who meet in the wake of the accidental death by drowning of a mutual
friend. Their determined struggle toward emotional honesty and
liberation--by no means guaranteed at the play's ambiguous
end--exemplifies the strength, humor, and complexity of all of Wilson's
work and confirms his standing as one of America's greatest living
playwrights. This production is a thesis project in acting by Sarah
MacGregor and William Goblerisch in partial fulfillment of the
requirements for the MA in Theater Arts.
