BLK BOX PHX is proud to open its 2019-2020 season with the Arizona Premier of Philip Dawkins’ The Burn, a play that tackles the issue of social media and how it impacts our conversations and our identities. The Burn cuts across all age groups, as well as workplace and social environments to address this very real issue affecting our culture and society.
In an interview, the author stated; “We are living in a polarized time where there’s no room for a gray area. Everything is yes or no or black or white, and that is destructive. It doesn’t leave room for conversation . . . social media is a tool and any tool can be used appropriately or inappropriately, creatively or thoughtlessly. “
The Burn is written by Philip Dawkins, produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc. and directed by Elaine “E.E.” Moe. Cast features Bethany Baca, Megan Holcomb, Mia Johnson, Mary Townsend and J.C. Lawler. *The play is recommended for ages 14+ due to strong, raw language and content.
