MUMBURGER

by Sarah Kosar

the American premiere of

March 1 - 16

A surreal new play about grief, parenting &
alternative meat

Tiffany's mum is killed by a Birds Eye truck on the M25.

 

There’s family to call and a coffin to order, but first she has to talk to her dad – and for some reason that's the toughest thing on her to-do list.

Meanwhile, an oozing paper bag appears, holding a dying wish that will either bring a father and daughter together, or drive them further apart. 

In her surreal play about grief, parenting, and alternative meat, Kosar asks how far we can be pushed by love and obligation

[...] packed with 

well-crafted details

[...] an intimate,

well-acted exploration

of grief and family. 

[Mumburger] offers a feast of cathartic release and a full plate of emotions [...]

wholly satisfying experience.

Its Sweeny Todd meets Ronald McDonald by way of Bear Grylls and Eull Gibbons.

Its “Alive” meets “Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle.”

It’s wacky, wild ride.

[...] a delicately daring feat,

balancing all sorts of things at once [...]

You ought to see Mumburger.

It’s artistically relevant and facetious and so very original

Mumburger is intriguing, connected

and a skillful dramedy.

A truly fascinating work of art.

[...] Mumburger is a play that stretches the imagination,

as well as the heart.

[...] the script is like an exploratory landing on a distant, dark moon

[...] It’s really remarkable work.

Sarah Kosar, Playwright

Sarah writes plays about theatrical worlds that look like our own but expose the absurdity and black comedy of human behaviour through a visceral, surreal and metaphorical register. Her work focuses on identity, feminism and the internal versus external.
