… we’ve yet to show ourselves what we truly are.
The story of Burn
In 2009, Julia had the opportunity to co-direct a production with her partner Timothy Hughes. They were asked to realise Burn, a bold, new version of Jean-Paul Sartre’s iconic vision of hell No Exit by the award-winning playwright Andy McQuade for his company Second Skin Theatre.
The location of the piece was now a desert island where the three trapped characters, played by Nika Khitrova, Iaione Perez, and Andy McQuade must fight each other for the hope of redemption.
The production premiered at The Underbelly as part of the 2009 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
