“Unexpected things happen.” – Dorothy
At 63, Dorothy expected to jump into the RV and take off with her husband at the wheel. Now facing life without her co-pilot, she makes a terrifying decision. She’s going to Burning Man. In the RV she’s never driven. To join thousands of revellers in the Nevada desert at the world’s largest art festival.
Based on the playwright’s mother, Burning Mom follows one woman’s exploits as she sheds the pain and grief of the past so she may fully embrace the future. Told with bittersweet humour and hard-won courage, Dorothy’s story will have you rooting for her all the way. Burning Man or bust. Who’s coming along for the ride?
