About the Play:

Sundown, Yellow Moon is a full-length drama with music by Rachel Bonds. 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. Sundown, Yellow Moon is an ethereal, honest, funny-sad play about seeing old faces with new eyes, and the liminal space between loss and letting go.

Sundown, Yellow Moon is about fathers and daughters, and loneliness, making mistakes, and making art. Set in a small college town in the South, the play – which includes several original songs by the indie-folk duo The Bengsons – focuses on Ray and Joey, twin sisters who have returned home from New York to visit their cranky father, Tom. He is recently divorced and has just had an altercation with the administration at the school where he teaches. Joey is about to head off to Berlin on a Fulbright scholarship, while Ray, a struggling musician, has just left her job and a romantic relationship with her boss. The family comes together and sees friends from their pasts, but they can't get over the ennui that is associated with moving on from where they've been to where they will be.

Sundown, Yellow Moon premiered in 2017 in a co-production between Ars Nova And The Women's Project (WP Theatre) at McGinn/Cazale Theater off Broadway in New York City.
