Burn at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2022

"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

"As the story unfolds, there are well-timed revelations and, in a clever reflexive sequence, storytelling itself comes under discussion. Muggleton successfully gets you interested in various strands of backstory, which all add to the immediate drama."

- Adrian Ross, Edinburgh Fringe

"Muggleton is a talented playwright who is able to construct a complex network of relations that let themselves morph into an apparent horror story before anyone realizes what is happening. Muggleton knows his craft and even when the end seems in sight, he still keeps us begging for more until the final moments." 
- Alvina Ruprecht, Capital Critics Circle

The version of Burn being performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival is the one hour festival version, not the full length version.

Helen Schofield
Wow! This was my first fringe show this year and what a great beginning. Tightly written and expertly performed, we were completely engrossed and involved. Well done guys, should be a must see for everyone!

Carolyn Corlet
So good I saw it twice!
Even though Burn is only an hour long, the talented cast and clever writing quickly draw the audience into this thriller to experience the unfolding events alongside the 4 characters. Superbly directed in the round by Venetia Lawless, the hour whizzes by and John Muggleton's script leaves just enough open ended questions to ensure a good discussion in the bar after! Make sure you don't miss this one and book soon as tickets are selling fast!
