“Fifteen years ago I killed my sister.”
So begins Adam Rapp’s highly acclaimed play in which a 32-year-old former piano prodigy recounts the tragic accident that tore his family apart. With a keen eye for human relationships and a deft ear for language, Rapp explores the aftershock of this unimaginable event. The play is at once a devastating and elegant portrait of grief and redemption, a gripping dissection of the American dream. Nocturne was awarded Boston’s Elliot Norton Award for Best New Script as well as Best New Play by the Independent Reviewers of New England. It was chosen as one of the 10 Best Plays of 2000-2001 by the annual Chronicle of U.S. Theatre. Of the original off-Broadway production, Michael Kuchwara of the Associated Press said, “A startling, unnerving work of art that fiercely pushes the boundaries of theatre ... Rapp is an original ... Nocturne will haunt you for a long time.”
