The Sunset Limited


West Coast Premiere
by Cormac McCarthy
directed by Bill English
September 28-November 6th
Press Opening, Saturday October 2, 2010

To kick off the season we bring one of the most insightful writers of our time, Cormac McCarthy (The Road, No Country for Old Men) together with two of the most powerful actors in the Bay Area, Carl Lumbly (Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train, Alias, Cagney & Lacey) and Charles Dean (White Christmas, Awake and Sing!). A startling encounter on a New York subway platform leads two strangers to a run-down tenement where they engage in a brilliant verbal duel on a subject no less compelling than the meaning of life.Read the Press Release

“Sunset Limited Pulses with Urgency”, “Lumbly makes the words sing…English stages the interplay as a tense psychological cat-and-mouse game and brings it to a compelling climax.”-Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle
