From a Black Egg
The Yellow Sign Theatre is proud to announce its upcoming play , "From a Black Egg," written and directed by Resident Artist Aaron Travis.

The latest in YST's season celebrating the intersection of film and theatre, "From a Black Egg" is a silent play performed in the style of classic German Expressionist silent films such as Nosferatu, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari, and  M. Set in 1920s Hungary, "From a Black Egg" tells the story of Cili and Dezo, a newlywed couple separated by war and driven to black magic to overcome their grief.

The play is scored by rising Boston-based art rock collective Bent Knee (www.bentkneemusic.com),. In a first for The Yellow Sign Theatre, Bent Knee  will be performing the score LIVE accompanying the play the weekend of Oct. 22-24.
