“Who can state so clearly the difference between exact memory and some story that we tell?” The Sun is in the West is a thought provoking new play by Southern writer, Damon Falke, exploring the power of place and story in the span of each human life.
Situated in a graveyard on the storm ravaged Gulf Coast of Texas, the characters grapple with their connection to the land, with family myths, and with their own histories. Falke’s rich storytelling and lush poetic language mark this play as a unique offering in the contemporary American theatre. “All my life, I think. All my life. Over the grounds here whole worlds are buried. Gone like they are.”
