Asylum Production Poster


Written by Kendall Rileigh and Nicki Miller

Directed by Nicki Miller

October 5-November 1, 2015

Burning Coal Theatre teams up with the Brooklyn-based Only Child Aerial Theatre to present this dynamic piece, performed largely in the air, about an Asylum circa the mid-1960s, and the people whose lives are inextricably connected through the old building.  If you liked our Henry V (on Trapeze) from 2011, you will love ASYLUM!  The concept and story for ASYLUM is by Kendall Rileigh and Nicki Miller and the production is directed by Nicki Miller, with original song composed for this production by Sophie B. Hawkins.
