Reviews

"As a suspense playwright, John Muggleton appreciates the need to orchestrate surprises. Like J.B. Priestley in An Inspector Calls and Anthony Shaffer in Sleuth, he understands the dramatic devices that can work in throwing an audience off balance."
- Jamie Portman, Capital Critics Circle​


​"Burn is a highly suspenseful ghost story that holds you in its fiery grip right up until the final moments."
- Alan Mackey, On Stage Ottawa


​"To understand and appreciate the ending, we need to be able to follow along the circuitous garden path down which the playwright takes us. And that we do, to the bitter, poetically just end."
- Jerry Wasserman, Vancouver Plays/Vancouver Sun


"The excellence of the writing and the gripping storyline, explained Producer Richard Birch. “It just grabbed us.”

​- Mariam King, Bradford Today

South Simcoe Theatre production ‘Burn’ lights up the stage in Cookstown


"Burn, with all of its horror, psychological intensity and exploration of dark corners, is the perfect antidote to COVID – an experience that fills the stage and captures the imagination."
