The Global Film Village: Lanford Wilson’s Burn This casts a spell over it’s actors and audience by Marla Lewin

Anna, (Melanie Hawkins) a professional dancer is living in a loft, with two gay roommates and they are all fabulous friends. Larry (Mark Thornton) works in advertising and feels he has sold his soul to make his living. Their other roommate Robbie also an exceptionally talented and famous dancer was just killed along with his Greek lover, Dominic in a boating accident. The opening scene is their reaction to the funeral which was surreal, as none of Robbie’s family seemed to know of his art, that he was famous, no one ever saw him dance, or acknowledged that he was gay. Anna is devastated by the experience. Robbie was her best friend and mentor. She can’t believe what has happened it seems totally unreal. Her sometime boyfriend Burton ( Eli Mahar) a talented schlock screenwriter arrives and tries to comfort her but has to leave to meet with his producer or agent.

During the course of the play we will learn that each of them feels estranged from their own families and only feels a kinship and emotional connection with this chosen group of friends. Their goals and life style choices are the causes of their isolation. They were protected and comfortable until the accident which totally shatters their equilibrium.
