Spring Send-Off: The Mysteries of Harris Burdick
Students, ages 8 – 14 present The Mysteries of Harris Burdick in BPA Theatre School’s Spring Send-Off. Harris Burdick wrote 14 stories and drew many pictures for each one. One day he took a single picture from each story to Peter Wender’s office at a popular children’s book publisher. Mr. Wenders was fascinated by the pictures and asked Mr. Burdick to return the next day so he could read the stories. Mr. Burdick left the pictures and promised to return, but this is where the mystery begins. Harris Burdick did not return. Despite years of searching and detective work, Mr. Wenders was never able to locate a trace of the missing author. Based on Burdick’s artwork, The Mysteries of Harris Burdick – a collection of three original scripts by Bainbridge playwright Miranda Ray, will deliver a surprising trio of possible endings.
By Miranda Ray, inspired by Chris Van Allsburg’s synonymous artwork
