Between the ages of 14 and 17, Patrick Burns lived with four foster families in Oakland, CA. His self-written, self-performed musical details this experience featuring a myriad of songs, a plethora of jaw-dropping and side-splitting anecdotes, and a bizarre cast of horrific, hilarious, and ultimately heartbreaking characters.

This musical extravaganza has astounded audiences off-Broadway and regionally. Bookings currently available.


“What makes Burns stand out, aside from his taking life in stride and his incredible intuition to simply roll with the punches, is that he never lost his sense of youth.” -Josh Austin, Green Room Reviews

“Hysterical, terribly politically incorrect characterizations and anecdotes bounce off the walls between songs and soliloquies that touch on our collective humanity. Only a handful of performers could yank tears out of an audience’s eyes with a speech about penguins. Burns is one of them.” -Ryan Imhoff
