The Dark Music of NOCTURNE at Burning Coal Theatre thru 3/24

My review of this tough and tender play was published 3/15/13 on, with the title “Being and Not Being: Mortall Coile’s Graceful Nocturne at Burning Coal.”

Actor Jesse R. Gephart is Mortall Coile Theatre Company (MCTC): he created this identity for the purpose of producing shows when possible in temporarily available local spaces. It’s a good name, for Gephart certainly knows something about soliloquy, and it is particularly fitting, too, for the Adam Rapp play Nocturne, which MCTC has produced as part of Burning Coal Theatre’s Wait ‘Til You See This! Series. Dana Marks directs; Gephart is the only actor in the affecting story that opens with the line, “Fifteen years ago I killed my sister.”
