Sunset Baby

Poster 1


Written by Dominique Morisseau

Directed by Kamilah Forbes

With John Earl Jelks, Harvey Gardner Moore, and DeWanda Wise

East New York, Brooklyn. Nina’s estranged father, a former black revolutionary, reappears to obtain a piece of her deceased Mother’s legacy. A powerful and honest story of one woman’s journey from a brutal existence to her own liberation, Sunset Baby is an energetic, daring look at the point where the personal and political collide.

critics_pick“Smart and bracing new play…Infuses old-fashioned generic staples with hot new blood…Compellingly acted three-character work, directed with a sure and steady hand by Kamilah Forbes” 

 ”Dynamite…explodes when you least expect it.”
