CONTENT WARNING:

This performance centers around a school shooting and its aftereffects. Please be aware of the theme of gun violence and its potentially triggering effects.

Synopsis:

Sophie is everything an upstanding young millennial should be: engaged, devoted to her family, and a likely valedictorian—but her life is shattered when her brother goes on a high school shooting rampage. Thrust into the spotlight, Sophie finds herself torn between defying the narrative being woven about her brother in the media and stopping the father she loves from using the rampage for his own political gain. Inspired by Antigone, The Burials is a modern tale of civic responsibility and the gun epidemic in America.
