A number of plays are adaptions from literary works students read in language arts classes: such as Homer, O. Henry, Saki, Bent, de Maupassant, Twain and Shakespeare.Burton also writes for adults. He is a three time winner of the Robert J. Pickering Award for Playwriting from the Coldwater Community Theater, Coldwater Michigan.
