A simple and tragic story. In Adam Rapp’s Nocturne, a 32-year-old struggling novelist tells us the story of his life over the past 15 years beginning with the fateful day when he was 17 and his brakes failed, causing him to run over and kill his 10-year-old sister. From that moment forward, normalcy and tranquility, and even sanity, are forever banished from the lives of each member of his Midwestern suburban family. The play reminds us how an inexplicable event can occur without any warning and forever alter the course of our lives.
