ABOUT THE PLAY The Sunset Limited is as unique and compelling a theatrical piece as you will find. The story -- about two men with polar opposite views debating God, love, salvation, forgiveness, the human condition, and the state of the world -- is written by Cormac McCarthy, known for such powerful dramatic works as No Country for Old Men and The Road. The Sunset Limited focuses on a single important day in the lives of two men known only as Black and White; strangers forced into one another’s lives when Black thwarts White’s effort to commit suicide by hurling himself in front of an oncoming subway train. Their ensuing conversation about purpose and worth becomes a literal matter of life and death, with Black doing all he can to give White the strength to carry on. What ensues is a sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes surprisingly funny, and always thought-provoking work of art that guarantees audience reflection long after they’ve left the theater. For mature audiences only.
This show will be presented with cabaret style seating, and audiences may BYOB!
