Etched In Skin On A Sunlit Night by Kara Lee Corthron is an intense and theatrical drama about lust, culture clash, and betrayal marks the arrival of one of the most exciting new voices in American theatre. The compelling story follows Jules, an African-American painter who has fled the U.S. under ambiguous circumstances and embraced a whole new life and family in Iceland. As Barack Obama's meteoric presidential campaign makes Jules more homesick than ever, her husband presents their biracial daughter with a shocking present, and a mysterious visitor shows up at Jules' studio. This whirlwind of events brings the demons of Jules' past crashing down on her new family and challenges her sense of racial and personal identity.
