THE CONTAINER by Clare Bayley
Available Friday, March 12th – Thursday, March 18th at 11:59pm

Five people from war torn countries find themselves thrown together, escaping in a shipping container….”.  They have fought overwhelming odds to get this far.  But where are they, except somewhere that they don’t know anything about, in the dark, surrounded by strangers, in a shipping container.  Is freedom minutes away?  Or something much worse?  

In 2019 Burning Coal Theatre partnered with CAM to present this play inside an actual shipping container. For just $5 your OLD FLAMES ticket gives access to THE CONTAINER through Thursday, March 25th at 11:59pm, and 48 hours to watch once you begin your viewing. It also includes insider access to the cast reunion Zoom on March 19th.
