Entertaining, Great staging, Quirky, Thought-provoking

See it if You enjoy small stories, casts, and sets. An interesting story told in one small room that holds a lot of memories.

Don't see it if You don't like mysteries that don't get answered, or super wordy plays. This is pure dialogue and no questions get answered.

Absorbing, Enchanting, Entertaining, Funny, Great acting

See it if You want to hang out with three childhood friends as some very interesting thing develop during their annual sleepover.

Don't see it if You do not have an open mind. You are not ready for a left turn during the play that will keep you enthralled and wanting to see how it ends

"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."
