Casting is set for the upcoming Ars Nova-WP Theater coproduction of Rachel Bonds' Sundown, Yellow Moon. Featuring songs by the Bengsons and direction by Anne Kauffman, the work will run February 28-April 1 at the McGinn/Cazale Theatre.

Sundown, Yellow Moon will feature Eboni Booth (Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again.), Lilli Cooper (The Wildness), Peter Friedman (The Affair), Greg Keller (Our Mother's Brief Affair), Anne L. Nathan (It Shoulda Been You), Michael Pemberton (Veep), and J.D. Taylor.

The work is described as follows: "While navigating the unsettling waters of young adulthood, twin sisters Ray (Lilli Cooper) and Joey (Eboni Booth) return home to find their father (Peter Friedman) in a moment of crisis. Under the cover of late-night, small-town shadows, sleep is elusive, connections are frayed, and the southern summer heat presses in. Sundown, Yellow Moon is an ethereal, honest, funny-sad play about seeing old faces with new eyes, and the liminal space between loss and letting go."

The creative team includes Lauren Helpern (scenic design), Jessica Pabst (costume design), Isabella Byrd and Matt Frey (lighting design), and Leah Gelpe (sound design).
