If this were the last day of your life, how would you spend it? Sam is stuck in the middle-of-nowhere with a middle-of-nowhere job as an ice cream man. While Sam grapples with the idea of leaving his hoarder father behind to start a new lifestyle, he receives news that sets his world ablaze.

Theoretical astrophysics, broken box fans, and ice cream sandwiches all collide in Mercy Street's world premiere production of Ian Michael James' BURN.
