The Burning is a (relatively) new play by Australian playwright Duncan Ley, inspired by 17th Century witch hunts in Germany. I will write more extensively about this later; for now, hereâs a downloadable interview with director Ray Frankel. It features very graphic descriptions of the torture process; donât say I didnât warn you! The play opens tonight (June 18th) and runs until July 2nd at the Zenith Theatre in Chatswood. And itâs only twenty bucks. There is a $17 concession but I donât think anyone whoâs young enough to qualify for it should be allowed in the theatre, judging by the excerpts that accompany the interview.
