Starting Valentine’s Day weekend, the Burnt Thicket Theatre began posting original audio plays about the challenges of marriage. Each play, which runs 15 to 30 minutes, tell these stories in a funny, gritty, and inspiring ways.
The Kindling Box, the first play by Jeany Van Meltebeke, posted Friday, February 12. It’s about a couple trying some exercises to ignite their marriage in a cafe at the advice of their therapist.
A new play posts every other Friday through April 9. Here’s the schedule:
- D.I.N.K.s by by Curtis Peeteetuce on February 26
- Like It Is by Aaron Krogman on March 12
- The One That Got Away by Yulissa Campos on March 26
- Middle Ground by Krista Marushy on April 9
The podcasts are free and can be streamed at burntthicket.com/project/tied-in-knots. You’ll even find suggestions on where and how to listen to each play with your special someone.
These plays contain mature content, so parental discretion is advised.
