When a high school production of THE CRUCIBLE forces students together, tensions escalate into acts of bullying—both online and in real life. THE BURN explores what happens to a teacher and his students when a classroom conflict turns into an online witch hunt. Featuring snippets from the Arthur Miller classic THE CRUCIBLE (1953), THE BURN is about bullying, but so much more than that. The demonization of the ‘Other’, which is increasing in our society as well as around the world. The play was originally presented at Steppenwolf Theatre Company in Chicago (2018). Recommended for ages 14+.
