The Dream of the Burning Boy | Cornerstone Production

By David West Read
Directed by Dawne Meeks

“Deep into the darkness I dared to dream …”

In The Dream of the Burning Boy, the sudden death of a high-school overachiever exposes a secret that could destroy those left behind or bring them closer together. Since the death of his favorite student, high-school teacher Larry Morrow has been falling asleep at his desk and dreaming. The school’s guidance counselor hangs inspirational posters designed to help everyone “process their emotions” while the student’s sister and friends find little solace in their schoolwork. The Dream of the Burning Boy is a bittersweet story of choices made, opportunities lost and finding the strength to move on.
