Throw Me on the Burnpile and Light Me Up


by Lucy Alibar
Directed by Rachel Parish

Oscar-nominated screenwriter and playwright Lucy Alibar (Beasts of the Southern Wild) crafted this poetic and powerful solo performance around her life growing up in the middle of nowhere on the Georgia-Florida line. The tapestry of her childhood includes a lecherous goat, Pentecostals on the radio, a clutter of in-bred cats, phone calls from death row, and Daddy’s burnpile. A magical, Southern coming-of-age tale rife with humor and heart.

Running Time
