Mercedes is an outsider. Tara makes sure she knows it. When a high school production of The Crucible forces them together, tensions escalate into acts of bullying - both online and IRL. The Burn explores what happens to a teacher and his students when a classroom conflict turns into an online witch hunt.
"...The playwright succinctly, yet emotionally, portrays the way social media has opened the door for modern day witch-hunts...Audiences familiar with The Crucible will marvel at how seamlessly [Dawkins] has both updated that script and paid homage to the classic. This is an important play...that will move audiences of all ages, inspire conversation and won't soon be forgotten." --ChicagoTheatreReview.com
"...fresh, bold... The Burn is sharp, current, truly topical and always immersive... In its short 90 minutes, The Burn pushes you to ponder much: truth, integrity, the power of groups, the sanctity of your name and cyber bullying." --Northwest Herald
"...moving, emotional, and powerful, with characters Dawkins is unafraid to place firmly into moral gray area, each of them justifying their actions in sometimes surprisingly valid ways. [The Burn] understands so intricately the lives of teenage girls - the challenges they face, the ways they struggle to cope, and the multiplicity of identities they have to shape in an increasingly digital world." --SplashMags.com
