THE YEAR OF THE SOLAR ECLIPSE Comes to Planet Connections Theatre Festivity

Aileen Kyoko and Ezra Bynum explore the light and the dark of three friends ... and the world in... The Year of the Solar Eclipse, written and directed by Aileen Kyoko, part of the 10th anniversary season of Planet Connections Theatre Festivity at the Theaters at the Clemente, 107 Suffolk Street, New York City (btw Rivington & Delancey) running Friday 7/13 @5:45pm-7pm; Wednesday 7/18 @7:45pm-9pm; Wednesday 7/25 @9:45pm-11pm; Sunday 7/29 @3:45pm-5pm; Monday 7/30 @5:30pm-6:45pm; Saturday 8/4 @12:45pm-2pm.

Aileen Kyoko, Ezra Bynum and Matthew Tyler present Ms. Kyoko's engrossing dramedy about three friends during a solar eclipse. As the world moves from light to day and back to light, the three friends begin a journey in which their lives resemble the eclipse. Days before her 30th birthday, one friend's relationship ends forcing her to rebuild her life and identity; another's free-spirited lifestyle is interrupted abruptly with the reappearance of an old "friend;" and the final friend cannot walk away from her demons before she walks down the aisle. As the sun hides behind the moon, a year of self-discovery, falling apart and secrets begins.

Each play contains a powerful message serving as a parable of various world themes. The Tenth Planet: Planet Connections Theatre Festivity will run from July 9 through August 5, 2018 at The Clemente, 107 Suffolk Street, Artists presenting works from all across America, including Denver, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Providence and New York City; and from all over the planet, including Japan, Yugoslavia, Russia, Peru, France, Belarus, & Haiti are part of this years festivity.

A defining facet of PCTF is its truly tangible connection to the world. Each artist within each season uses their work to shed light on causes that matter and inspire audiences to get involved.
