Honors Directing Thesis



Jeannette Leopold's Honors Directing Thesis featuring Lanford Wilson's BURN THIS is a shocking and beautiful story of grief and love. As the play opens, Anna (Anita Castillo-Halvorssen '15) and Larry (Patrick Ross '15) have just returned from the funeral of their best friend and roommate, Robbie. Anna struggles with her grief and tries to find solace in her passionless relationship with boyfriend Burton (Daniel Cho '15). When Robbie's brother Pale (Alexander Rojavin '15) bursts into Anna and Larry's apartment in the middle of the night, everything changes. BURN THIS shows four people fighting to stay afloat through loss, and through death, and leaves you holding a flame of hope.

BURN THIS is presented by special arrangement with Dramatist's Play Service, Inc., New York.
