A Darkling at Nightfall

By Mallory Raven-Ellen Backstrom
Lisa Gaye Dixon, director

The Inaugural Daniel J. Sullivan Playwright-in-Residence Program Presents a Workshop of A Darkling at Nightfall by Mallory Raven-Ellen Backstrom

Evren Andraste is an anomaly in the universe, a feral woman. Half human and darkling, raised alone in the wild by her father--a primordial forest spirit and mythic storyteller. As wildfires rage across the globe, she is thrust into the realms of man and Fae folk. To save herself, she must become familiar with the Nightfall, outsmart the Queen of the Shimmering, survive the Darkling, and find a way to appeal to the heart of mankind before it’s too late. A Darkling at Nightfall is a supernatural fairytale exploring the fecund feminine, the interconnection of Earth and Spirit, and the power of the stories we tell.
