Comments Estle, “As we enter our 37th season, I’m excited to welcome playwright Rachel Bonds to our theatre. She’ll be joining us during the creative process for “Sundown, Yellow Moon.” Rachel is a gifted writer who has written a beautifully honest play which wrestles with family, returning home, hopes and dreams. This slice of life play with music is sure to move our audiences.”
SUNDOWN, YELLOW MOON will play October 3 – November 17 on Raven’s 85-seat East Stage, 6157 N. Clark St. (at Granville) in Chicago. For more information visit raventheatre.com.
