About This Show

А Star Without a Name is a melodramatic tragicomedy adapted by Ilya Eckstein from a translation of Mihail Sebastian’s Steaua Fără Nume. Written in 1942 in Romania to instant success, the play, produced by PM Theater, makes its NYC premiere at the Theatre at St. Clement’s. Commissioned by the Eckstein Family Fund and fiscally sponsored by COJECO, PM Theater’s А Star Without a Name is produced by Sergey Nagorny and directed by Gera Sandler.

The setting is a provincial town in Romania, situated along the popular train route from Bucharest to Sinai. By sheer chance, an express train that usually flies by without slowing down, makes a quick stop at the town’s only train station, leaving behind a sole passenger: a mysterious young redhead. Her beauty strikes right through the heart of a simple school teacher, who’s fascinated by stars and astronomy. Will their improbable love survive past its cosmic conception or will it combust like so many nameless stars in the sky?
