March 14, 2017: To love is to worry in Sundown, Yellow Moon, Rachel Bonds’s quietly perceptive portrait of a family in simmering crisis at the McGinn/Cazale Theater. The characters in this beautifully acted production from Ars Nova and WP Theater, directed with probing sensitivity by Anne Kauffman, are united by a web of mutual concern that is as exasperating as it is reassuring.READ THE REVIEW

WP Theater joins forces with the acclaimed and adventurous theater company Ars Nova to present the world premiere of award-winning playwright Rachel Bonds’ latest offering, Sundown, Yellow Moon, featuring music and lyric from Brooklyn indie-rock duo The Bengsons (Hundred Days) and additional lyrics by Rachel Bonds (Swimmers), and directed by two-time OBIE Award winner Anne Kauffman (The Nether).
While navigating the unsettling waters of young adulthood, twin sisters Ray and Joey 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. Sundown, Yellow Moon is an ethereal, honest, funny and sad play about seeing old faces with new eyes, and the liminal space between loss and letting go.
