In this new psycho-sexual thriller by “the beloved bard of downtown theater” (New York Magazine), a deranged burn victim stalks a young Harvard student through a blazing dreamscape of literary orgies, Burning Man raves, and Keatsian struggles to divine the truth of beauty and the beauty in truth.
Come see the latest from the theatrical wizard Kirk Wood Bromley, whose work has been produced across the country on stage and screen, awarded the 2001 Berrilla-Kerr Playwrighting Grant, and compared by critics to Stoppard and Shakespeare.

Could be on a comparative Shakespeare class syllabus.” Time Out New York

Bromley would your match be, term for term.” Village Voice
