NICU’S SPOON THEATRE COMPANY is pleased to announce their production of John Langan’s HOW THE DAY RUNS DOWN, directed by S. BARTON-FARCAS. HOW THE DAY RUNS DOWN will play a three-week limited engagement at the SPOON THEATER (38 west 38th street, 5th floor). Performances begin Wednesday, July 6 and continue through Sunday, July 24. Opening Night is Saturday, July 9 (8 p.m.).
Merge Our Town with Dawn of the Dead and you have a slight idea of what happens when a small town is overrun by the undead. Best described as Our Town with zombies, with Thornton Wilder's Stage Manager moving between the different townspeople's stories to describe not their mundane sorrows and joys, but their encounters with, and last stands against, the zombie horde. The juxtaposition of Wilder's play, which is all about the continuity of communal life in the face of individual deaths, with a plot that posits that not only the town but all of humanity is doomed, makes for a heartbreaking story.
The production features costume design by S. Barton-Farcas and lighting design by Steven Wolf. Damon Law is composer of the score and Juni Li is the stage manager.
