"So detailed and poetic is the writing...that we buy and are powerfully moved by the whole thing." Donald Lyons, New York Post

"'There's a finality in fact,'

says the narrator of Adam Rapp's NOCTURNE, a stunning confrontation with truth that spares neither the character or the audience. A young man identified only as the Son, makes a tragic mistake as a teenager and then attempts to come to terms with what he has done, sending ripples of change through his family and his own life. This reconciliation forms the heart and soul of NOCTURNE, a startling, unnerving work of art that fiercely pushes the boundaries of theater.  intensely lyrical, musical in its sounds and in its silences. Make no mistake. Rapp is an original—a distinctive voice unafraid to be too descriptive..."Michael Kuchwara, Associated Press
