The Secret Squirrel Society & The Uncastables are proud to present the San Diego premier of a new play by Cormac McCarthy, the author of No Country For Old Men and The Road.

The Sunset Limited is directed by Miriam Cuperman, featuring performances by Anthony Hamm and John J. Pistone, The Uncastables founder, will be performed on the outdoor stage at the Space 4 Art facility in the heart of the East Village in San Diego.  This will be the first play ever produced on this stage. 

Guests are encouraged to bring blankets and picnic baskets to enhance the experience this exciting, live, outdoor event.

The Story:

On a subway platform in New York City, an ex-con from the South saves the life of an intellectual atheist who wasn’t looking for salvation.

Now, the reformed murderer-turned-savior ventures to offer salvation of another kind, bringing the failed suicide victim back to his Harlem apartment for an articulate and moving debate about truth, fiction and belief.

The two men are named Black and White, as indeed they are. White is disillusioned and disenchanted by the modern world. Black had an epiphany after a nasty knife fight in the penitentiary and discovered a faith that he now wants to share with others, or at least with White.

Black begins in control, but it quickly becomes clear that the nonbeliever is much more secure in his convictions than the believer.  And when White goes on the attack, his nihilism steamrolls his opponent.

Is Black a guardian angel or just a sinner looking for redemption?

Was White really saved, or is he stuck in a kind of purgatory? -

Performances are March 2, 3, 9, 10, 16,[masked] @ 7:00 pm.

Tickets are only $15.00 per person and $5.00 of every ticket goes to charity.

We are hoping that the Uncastables members will help us promote this exciting new production, so we have put together the following offer:

Any Uncastable Member who sells ten (10) tickets to the show will receive one (1) free ticket for themselves, or a friend, as well as $10.00 in Secret Squirrel Bucks good for free play at any Secret Squirrel event. This is a $25.00 value.

Tickets can be purchased online @
