This play is an absurdist comedy set in the world of a local news broadcast dealing with a cataclysmic event. The sun has set over the neighborhoods, government buildings and American backyards everywhere. A news team is on the way. Their report: someone left the lawn sprinklers on; someone’s horse is on the loose; a seashell is lying in the grass; dogs run by. The Governor appeals for calm. Everyone doesn’t know if the sun, once down, will ever rise again.
The cast is:
Frank in the studio – Duane Larson
John in the field – Nick Kilburg
Constance at the Home – Jessica Wilson
Michael (legal advisor) – Gavin Conkling
Witness – Brian Kleis
