With marriage equality so present in our headlines, it's the perfect time to savor the emotional depth and sparkling wit of Noel Coward's A Song at Twilight. Written as his theatrical swan song, A Song at Twilight was born at the beginning of the gay rights movement. An aging English novelist and his stately wife are visited by his flashy former mistress, who is up to no good. Old love letters emerge, and memories are stirred up for the man, who -- despite a life of wealth, success, laughter, luxury and travel -- lives in an emotional prison of regret. Issues of hidden homosexuality, fame, wealth, titles, and privilege are explored with both poignancy and humor in this Theatre Rhinoceros production at Z Below in San Francisco.
This show is 90 minutes long, with no intermission.
