Burnt-Out Wife explores the decay and detritus of a once-promising marriage. Separation, sex deprivation, and lack of communication add up to wanting to run from the popular, yet impossible binding contract. Using her comedic text-driven dance style, Sara Juli blows up marriage. Original Costume by Carol Farrell, Set Design by Pamela Moulton, Dramaturgy by Michelle Mola and Lighting Design by Justin Moriarty.

Also, funded in part by a grant from the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
