COVID-19 and OTHER AIR-BORNE DISEASES POLICY

To protect our actors, crew, and audiences in our intimate space, we ask that all audiences wear a mask at all Burning Coal Theatre’s public, indoor performances. We recommend a high-quality mask (3-ply surgical, KN95, N95) unless actively eating or drinking in the lobby, and we will offer 3-ply surgical or KN95 masks to audience members as needed.

Synopsis: There’s a ghost on the Ivory Highway. It follows the tusk of an elephant across thousands of miles, over land and sea, and feels each hand it touches along the way. Who is culpable in this underground global market? Can we learn from Mlima’s Tale?
