Four Corners Project

RALEIGH, NC – With creative spaces at a premium throughout the Triangle, Burning Coal Theatre Company would like to announce the Four Corners Project, which will begin in its 2020/2021 season. This project will make available the Murphey School space for one week, four times a year to creative individuals or companies with innovative and exciting projects.  The projects should be either performance or visual art-related and should not involve a fee for its participants.  The projects do not have to include a performance, though they may, but should be focused on exploring issues around performance or the creation of art. Nothing is too ‘out there’! 

The four weeks that the space will be granted are August 31 – September 6, 2020, September 7 – 13, 2020, November 16 – 22, 2020, and December 28, 2020 – January 3, 2021. To apply, fill out the Google Form found on Burning Coal’s website (burningcoal.org) or click here. Submissions are due by March 15, 2020. Selected projects will be announced by the end of the month.

DARK VANILLA JUNGLE by Philip Ridley

Burning Coal Theatre at the Camden Fringe Festival – August 10 – 14, 2016
Cockpit Theatre, London, England

Burning Coal Theatre Company of Raleigh, North Carolina returns to the Cockpit with Philip Ridley’s brutal 70 minute “Dark Vanilla Jungle”.  

A scalding play about a young woman trying to come to terms with a terrible breach of trust.

In November, 2014, Burning Coal brought over David Edgar’s roaring Iron Curtain Trilogy (4-stars, Michael Billington, Guardian).

The company returns with Philip Ridley’s quietly devastating masterpiece.

Wednesday 10th to Saturday 13th August – 9:00pm
Sunday 14th August – 8:30pm

All Tickets: £10 at http://tickets.thecockpit.org.uk/Sales/Shows/Dark-Vanilla-Jungle#book
