WORLD PREMIERE RUN IN THE BRONX!
Written by Alejandra Ramos Riera
Directed by Jorge B. Merced
BURNED is part of our free INTERACTIVE Theater initiative exploring post-pandemic mental wellness in The Bronx. The play tells the story of LINDA -a Bronx native and former hospital worker during the pandemic. After quitting her job and losing her apartment, LINDA is now living with her sister CHELSEA. Emotionally drained, overwhelmed, and burned out, LINDA is struggling with mental health issues herself. Not being able to deal with this alone, she decides to speak up, but instead of getting support, she gets bullied by Chelsea’s boyfriend JOE and discarded by her sister, who minimizes and diminishes her mental health battles.
The play’s end will be determined by the audience in attendance at every performance.
Featuring NICOLE BETANCOURT, ISMAEL CASTILLO, NICOLLE MARQUEZ, SUNI REYES and RAYMOND XAVIER.
