Too Much Sun

Written by Nicky Silver and Directed by Penny Napoli

Audrey Langham, an actress of some repute but greater temperament, reaches her breaking point while rehearsing Medea in Chicago. She walks off the stage and out of the production. With no place else to go, she heads to her daughter’s summer house on Cape Cod. Kitty and her husband, Dennis, however, hardly greet Audrey with champagne and confetti. Audrey gets a warmer reception from the star-struck widower next door and his troubled son. A summer by the sea full of hilariously calculated romance and clandestine trysts leads to an inevitable tragedy. But from that tragedy emerge new beginnings and new bonds. Secrets are unearthed as each of these characters finds a way to shed the role they’ve been playing in life, a way to be who they really are when they stop “acting.”
