Join Burning Coal for the US premiere of British playwright Clare Bayley’s funny and troubling play about a photographer who inadvertently snaps a picture of something he shouldn’t have.  The play is based on a true story and deals with one of the darkest episodes in recent US history … and it happened right here in our own backyard.
