Fourteen year-old Pete is fighting to claim his past. His older brother Jake is hoping to forge a future. The Burnt Part Boys tells the story of an eclectic band of friends teetering on the brink of adulthood. They've embarked on a life-altering journey to the coal mine that took their father’s life.
With its soaring, elegiac bluegrass and pop-inspired score, this inspirational musical finds both the streaks of light and the heart of darkness within us all.
