Fly By Night

Fly By Night
A star-crossed prophecy. A lot of music. Just not a lot of light. In this darkly comic rock-fable, a melancholy sandwich maker's humdrum life is intersected by two entrancing sisters. A sweeping ode to young love set against the backdrop of the northeast blackout of 1965, Fly By Night is a tale about making your way and discovering hope in a world beset by darkness.

conceived by Kim Rosenstock; written by Will Connolly, Michael Mitnick and Kim Rosenstock. Winner!!! 2011 Edgerton Foundation New American Play Award
