Claire’s house burns down in a California wildfire, setting off a series of events that forces her to face parts of her life that she has been denying for too long, including her husband’s infidelity and her mother’s mental illness. A contemporary, small-cast comedic drama, Controlled Burn is a play about dying and living and how we find our way through both.
