The Burials follows Sophie, a valedictorian millennial whos life is shattered when her brother goes on a high school shooting rampage. Thrust into the national spotlight, Sophie finds herself torn between preserving her brothers memory against his abject vilification in the media, and preventing her father (a republican senator) from using the rampage for his own political ends. |
The Burials will be set intimately in the studio theater and include multimedia created in collaboration with the Visual Art Department.
The Burials will be presented in collaboration with the University Wide Common Read exploring the epidemic of gun violence in America.
