KDT Begins Rehearsals for “Throw Me on the Burnpile…”

L-Alibar-shenanigansRehearsals have begun for the world premiere of “Throw Me on the Burnpile and Light Me Up,” written and performed by the Oscar-nominated Lucy Alibar (Best Adapted Screenplay for “Beasts of the Southern Wild”). “Throw Me on the Burnpile…” begins previews September 10, opens September 16 and continues through October 2, 2016, at Center Theatre Group’s Kirk Douglas Theatre.
Directed by Center Theatre Group Associate Artistic Director Neel Keller, “Throw Me on the Burnpile and Light Me Up” blends a lecherous goat, Pentecostals on the radio, a clutter of inbred cats, phone calls from death row, Daddy’s burnpile and countless other rich ingredients into a delicious and magical stew of stories about a singular childhood in Grady County, Florida.
The design team for “Throw Me on the Burnpile…” includes Takeshi Kata for scenic design, Laura Bauer for costumes, Elizabeth Harper for lighting, Adam Phalen for sound and Jason H. Thompson for projection design. The production stage manager is Maggie Swing.
