This collection is not recommended for children. DURANG/DURANG is directed by Olivia Griego and features Barbette Hunter, Whitney Griffin, Jeff Buckner, G. Todd Buker, PJ Maske, Richard Butner, Julie Oliver, Hilary Edwards, Jason Bailey, Lucinda Gainey, Andrew Martin, and Olivia Griego.

Burning Coal Theatre Company is one of Raleigh's small, professional theatres. Burning Coal is an incorporated, non-profit [501 (c) (3)] organization. Burning Coal's mission is to produce literate, visceral, affecting theatre that is experienced, not simply seen. Burning Coal produces explosive reexaminations of overlooked classic and modern plays, as well as new plays, whose themes and issues are of immediate concern to our audience, using the best local, national and international artists available. We work toward a theatre of high-energy performances and minimalist production values. The emphasis is on literate works that are felt and experienced viscerally, unlike more traditional linear plays, at which audiences are most often asked to observe without participating. Race and gender non-specific casting is an integral component of our perspective, as well as an international viewpoint.
