World premiere Burn the Black Dog is ‘Recommended’ by the Chicago Reader and opened to sold out performances this weekend. 

Chicago area business owner of An Event Less Ordinary Carolyn Ewald attendedSaturday’s performance and stated: ‘Burn the Black Dog is absolutely enchanting, the kind of theater that brings you into their world completely and stays with you long after. It’s not a play, it’s an experience, and it’s phenomenal.’ 

St. Cyprian’s School for Girls is an upscale private high school with a lot of secrets. Audiences will choose to experience intertwining storylines as either a student or a faculty member. This immersive reinterpretation of the Salem Witch Trials also incorporates inspirations from the 90’s cult classic The Craft and Punchdrunk’s Sleep No More. Journey alongside the actors as they navigate the halls searching for answers in the case of missing teen Beth Parris.
