Cast and Crew
Burgdorf is a mythical place in the heart of the Idaho mountains. At night you can see every star. The complex consists of one enormous hot pool and a scattered collection of log cabins. Heated by the earth, stinking of sulfur and other minerals. It’s said that if you soak in it long enough, all your woes will melt away. And God does the McPhearson family need it.
Nobody has been back to the hot spring since their father and the head of the family died. Peggy, the reluctant matriarch, is locked in an eternal feud with Meemaw, her mother in law who grows magic mushrooms. Lilly-Pearl and Burgundy haven’t seen their big brother in over a year and are ready to raise hell against his soon-to-be fiance, Lena. It’s a powder keg ready to explode and nobody has cell reception. What could go wrong?
This performance will take place live and IN PERSON in Gluek Park, so bring a camping chair or a blanket and get ready to get together for some live theatre!
Join us on August 5th for a special talk back after the show with the playwright!
