Siblings Mordy and Jane have a problem. Their dreadful, centenarian grandfather is an emotional and financial tax on the family, and he just won’t die. Scheming almost entirely via sarcastic and misspelled text messages, the siblings hatch an outrageous plan to relieve their family of their grandfather’s burden.
Zany, twisted and inventive, this dark comedy reminds us it’s much easier to write what we could never say face to face.
“The play grabs you from the start and keeps you involved and surprised until a finale that is both surprising and welcome."
“A deliciously dark comedy! ... A thoughtfully-reflective look at familial relationships that will surely resonate with audiences of all backgrounds and experiences.”
"Frequently laugh out loud funny, but it’s also a little bit heartbreaking at times. That’s a challenging mix to sustain, but The Burdens succeeds.“
