Sunset Baby
by Dominique Morisseau
The Kitchen Theatre Company

“The Kitchen Theatre brings it to life in a searing, ground-rattling production packed with three smoldering performances. Director Margarett Perry beautifully modulates the tension, alternating the verbal explosions with quiet, emotionally resonant moments of solitude. The design team creates a vibrant atmosphere, from David L. Arsenault’s set, which carves theater space into a listless apartment, Amanda Cardwell-Aiken’s costumes that combine flash and comfort, Arsenault and co-lighting designer Andrew Scharwath’s ability to both heat and cool the space with subtle shifts, and the propulsive sound score from Ryan Mutton.”

“Kitchen Theater Resident Director, Margarett Perry, best known for comedies with sparkling wordplay, has championed Sunset Baby from the get-go. Under her practiced hand, the play is as much about the ways two generations torture each other with abrasive language as it is about revolution, family or history.”

“Resident Director Margarett Perry makes fine use of her excellent cast.
The ever-present possibility of violence (that flashing gun) keeps us on edge. ‘Sunset Baby’ is compelling and honest, and this strong production is relevant, timely, and provocative.”
