Sundown, Yellow Moon

February 28–April 1

A World Premiere
a nighttime play with songs by Rachel Bonds
with music & lyrics by The Bengsons
additional lyrics by Rachel Bonds
a co-production with Ars Nova
directed by Anne Kauffman

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.

ANNE KAUFFMAN
2015 OBIE AWARD WINNER
Sustained Excellence of Direction

“Every play is a world all its own, and every new play is a world that a director has to explore, map, and sometimes shape. It takes resolve and patience; it takes an imagination that must build on the playwright’s vision, knowing when to trust and when to challenge. It takes an open mind and a sturdy, daring spirit. For displaying that spirit, in many seasons past, and this year with productions like Buzzer, The Nether, and You Got Older, the judges have voted an Obie for Sustained Excellence of Direction to ANNE KAUFFMAN” – Tommy Tune
