Burning Coal Theatre Company says its mission is to “produce literate, visceral, affecting theatre that is experienced, not simply seen. We emphasize works that are felt and experienced viscerally, unlike more traditional, linear plays where audiences are most often asked to observe without participating. Using the best local, national and international artists available, we produce explosive re-examinations of overlooked classics, modern and contemporary plays that address issues and themes poignant in our community. With this in mind, we strive to achieve high-energy performances with minimalist production values. Race and gender non-specific casting is an integral component of our perspective, as well as an international viewpoint.”
