Burning Coal Theatre Company’s second stage series, Wait Til You See This will include three plays (TBA) running in repertory during the month of June, 2018.  This year’s series, ONE, TWO, THREE will include a play written for one actor, a play written for two actors and a play written for three actors.  How do the dynamics of the actor-audience relationship change when another character is introduced?  These three electrifying plays will keep you riveted with their storytelling, but also perhaps cause you to ask: “What is ‘theatre’?”

A young woman and a young man go on a journey of discovery.  In this whimsical tale by the master of witty wordplay, Tom Stoppard (Shakespeare in Love, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern are Dead) joins up with the chief purveyors of Mood Rock, the legendary Pink Floyd, whose album Darkside of the Moon stayed on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart an astonishing 14 years, to create a fast and funny ride that will leave you guessing, laughing and listening in equal measures.  

Stoppard’s incredible tale is blended seemlessly with Pink Floyd’s Darkside of the Moon in this triumphant consideration of love, mortality, nature and puns.

This raging masterpiece shocked New York when it appeared at the Public Theatre in 1985, as the AIDs epidemic was beginning to exert its terrible grip on the nation and the world.  The New York Times declared “A great silence has been broken.”  The writer of the piece, Larry Kramer, had been ostracized, branded a malcontent, an agitator.  Then he wrote this play.
