Description

Purchase a BPP Season Subscription – Six Tickets for the Price of Five or Five Tickets for the Price of Four!

Poster for the burdensSiblings Mordy and Jane communicate like proper millennials: primarily through text message and loaded with sarcasm. When their loving mother’s life becomes emotionally and financially taxed by their absolutely awful and 100-year-old grandfather, Zad-Zad, they draw together an elaborate plot to…relieve their mother’s burden. Told almost entirely via text messages, The Burdens is a dark, family comedy about how technology helps keep us close, while still enabling us to keep our distance. After all, it’s sometimes easier to type something than it is to say it face to face, isn’t it? But please, be careful of auto-correct. It can be murder.

The BPP lobby will open an hour in advance; if the show has not sold out in advance any remaining tickets may be purchased at the BPP box office counter at that time. House opens half an hour in advance. Refunds or exchanges can only be made up to 24 hours in advance of showtime.
