SUNDOWN, YELLOW MOON  | Open: 02/28/17 Close: 04/01/17
While navigating the unsettling waters of young adulthood, twin sisters return home to find their father in a moment of crisis. Under the cover of late-night, small-town shadows, sleep is elusive, connections are frayed, and the southern summer heat presses in. An ethereal, honest, funny-sad play about seeing old faces with new eyes, and the liminal space between loss and letting go.
