Mid-negotiation, modernist painter Patricia changes the terms of her ‘conscious uncoupling’ with Jason. 

She wants full custody of their 15-year-old daughter Beth. 

Jason demands that their daughter decide, but mysteriously Beth didn’t show up for school. 

Has Patricia hidden her away to protect her, or is there something more sinister afoot?

Crafted with humor and insight by Boston playwright Kate Snodgrass and director Melia Bensussen, "THE ART OF BURNING" explores the love, rage, and responsibility that come with marriage and parenting in America.
