Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if you want to go on a journey that takes a left turn half-way through but keeps you enthralled. Theater at its best. A small intimate venue.

Don't see it if you have no imagination, don't like magic realism or small venues

Absorbing, Clever, Thought-provoking, Great writing, Great acting

See it if you like intimate, thoughtful shows that explore friendship in an unusual way. you like great actors performing well-written dialogue.

Don't see it if you are looking for a predictable, linear plot that ties up all the loose ends at the conclusion. There is no clear resolution here.

"As inexplicable and strange as what happens in Panettieri's new play 'A Burial Place' may seem, there is something so real, so humanly relatable to its ethereal quality that it becomes this heartwarming story...All three actors really bring this bond of friendship to such a fundamental core, that there is little the audience can do but share in the experience, wondering if they could be as strong as these characters are."

"Panettieri’s script is a master class in building character and drawing out tension. The three performances are superb...Director Brenneman does an exceptional job of creating a casual, natural atmosphere at the beginning of the play, and then, gradually, ramping up the tension until a moment of climax...It’s a play where you don’t know what is ever coming next, but it results in a satisfying conclusion that ruminates on friendship, loss, and growing older and apart."
