Theatre is Easy
November 30th, 2015

"More than just an 'issue play,' 'Mourning Sun' sheds light on a preventable medical condition, but does so with a level head and a full heart...Yet for all its level-headed eye-opening, 'Mourning Sun' truly comes to life in the second act...'Mourning Sun' moves from a solid play to a great one; the penultimate scene is especially powerful—incredibly unexpected yet also somehow dramaturgically perfect, and one of the most moving portrayals of cross-cultural empathy I have seen on stage."

"A beautifully acted new play…It was sometimes hard to follow completely, due both to language and leaps in the plotting. But, thanks to the direction by Ari Laura Kreith and the acting of the seven-member cast, the play is not easily summed up or dismissed...'Mourning Sun' winds up satisfying in surprising ways."

"Theatre 167 once again presents an intriguing, global and universal new work...This was a long, beautiful show followed by a lively talkback session...Jessica Raye Court’s costumes are beautifully distinctive. Jen Price Fick’s set design is functional and makes the places we leave seem pleasantly transparent."
