Featured Program: Brown Box Theatre presents: Mox Nox or Soon Comes The Night at Holts Landing State Park

At Holts Landing State Park In a world of magical realism and rising water, two sisters are reunited at their family home. Mira, the caretaker sister, had to weather her mother’s death alone, and holds every childhood slight so close that she is literally burning from the inside out, shedding ashes and embers, as her wife, Amanda attempts to soothe her. Sister Deedee has returned to bring her fiancée, Pike, to safety, even as her memory is vanishing faster and faster. In this slowly drowning world, everyone is searching for higher ground. The sisters battle to the end, one unable to forget, the other unable to remember. A play of lyrical magic and visual surprise, with characters who desperately need love and dry land. No tickets are needed. Lawn seating, blankets, and lawn chairs welcome. This program is sponsored by the Delaware Division of the Arts and Delaware State Parks.
