Burn by John Muggleton
Old friends Robert, Samira and David are the only three left of the original gang.
Robert’s wife, famed mystery novelist Tara Waters, disappeared five years ago, though Robert insists she’s still alive. Paul, also a writer, died the year before, shortly after reuniting with his estranged daughter Eve. Eve has asked to meet the three friends for the first time, stating that she has something important to deliver. Over the evening’s meeting, Eve becomes awkward, eerie, strange and sinister. As the evening unravels, the chaos erupts with hidden secrets revealed.

"Burn is an entertaining and often compelling puzzle and this production gives full value to the play’s cleverness and intricacy. We really want to find out who did what to whom.”
