Geffen Playhouse and Audible will coproduce Nightfall, a new play written by Marisela Treviño Orta (The River Bride, Wolf at the Door) as part of Audible's Emerging Playwrights Fund. The play will make its world premiere in the Geffen's Audrey Skirball Kenis Theater in February, thus completing the company's 2019-20 season lineup.

"In Nightfall," according to a press release, "survival becomes the name of the game for Karla and her stepdaughter Olivia when their fraught family camping trip is interrupted by news of a mysterious outbreak causing the humans in nearby San Francisco to become…well, bitey. With little information to go on, the two women must identify the biggest threat to their safety — the supposedly deadly virus, the stranger who stumbles into their campsite or each other."

As with most other Audible productions, Nightfall will be released as an audio play simultaneously with its opening at the Geffen, exclusively on Audible.
