John Muggleton

"Burn is an entertaining and often compelling puzzle, and Patrick Truelove’s Sidekick Players production, built around a commanding central performance, gives full value to the play’s cleverness and intricacy. We really want to find out who did what to whom."

Grace has had a perfect life, but now she wants the perfect death. A multiple award winning dark comedy about estate planning, imminent death and scotch.

More about Burn

"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 site, he still keeps us begging for more until the final moments."

Alvina Ruprecht,

Capital Critics Circle, Ottawa
