"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


"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


Nominated for 6 awards including Best New Play of 2017 by the Capital Critics Circle
