“Fifteen years ago I killed my sister.” From this simple testimony comes the dark and devastating story of a former piano prodigy who accidentally ended his sister’s life in a teenage car crash. He remains estranged from his family until confrontations with a would-be lover and distant father force him to confront the terrifying possibility of forgiveness. Nocturne combines a linguistic deftness with the lilting rhythms of classical composition to create what the New York Times calls “a stunning confrontation with truth that spares neither the character nor the audience… A startling, unnerving work of art that fiercely pushes the boundaries of theater.” The New York Post raves, “Rapp uses subtle, sensuous, bold, and funny language… So detailed and poetic is the writing… that we buy and are powerfully moved by the whole thing.”
