Granville Island Stage

At 63, Dorothy learns that life is too short to delay your aspirations. After losing her husband, she decides to take their RV on the road trip of his dreams: she’s going to Burning Man. After all, it’s only a 21-hour drive to a weeklong culture festival and party with no plumbing in the middle of a desert—how hard can it be? Burning Mom is a stirring tale of one woman’s odyssey of self-discovery, and how art, everlasting roads, and human connection propel her along the way. Prepare to laugh and cry as Dorothy’s story invites you to take risks and enjoy the small moments in life. Come along for the ride!

Enjoy our waterfront venue the Granville Island Stage, next to the Public Market, with Burning Mom! Want more shows? Subscribe and save! Get the exciting 4-show Granville Island Series from $108, or mix and match with a Choose-Your-Own subscription.
