TN_Dream of the Burning Boy promoTHE DREAM OF BURNING BOY
The Nerve
Oct. 20-31
PNC Arts Annex [Dayton]

Since the sudden death of his favorite student, high-school teacher Larry Morrow has been falling asleep at his desk and dreaming. The school’s guidance counselor is hanging inspirational posters designed to help everyone “process their emotions.” The student’s sister and friends—more agitated and hormonal than usual—find little solace in Dante’s Inferno. And as Larry’s dreams intensify, a shocking secret is exposed. A secret that will change everything. Searing yet surprisingly funny, THE DREAM OF THE BURNING BOY is about finding the strength to move on…and the courage to live without regret.

Cast: Chris Hahn as Larry, Liz Lindon as Rachel, Skyler McNeely as Steve, Stephanie Ridgeway Johnson as Chelsea, Ricky Yannotti as Kyle, Kaleigh-Brooke Scheiding as Andrea & Connor Gray as Dane

A Note About Casting
Dayton is an incredibly diverse community with artists from all walks of life. In casting this season, we would love the makeup of persons in our show to reflect that diversity and, in turn, show audiences a more honest, beautiful representation of this city we call home. In that spirit, BIPOC actors, actors with disabilities, trans/gender non-conforming actors are all encouraged to audition for whatever roles speak most accurately to their truth. Ignore your preconceived notions of “type.” Think of yourself as originating the role(s) you are auditioning for. We want to see you shine through the language of the character. We want to feel your most authentic self in the margins of every page.
