'An artist's love is one of the most favorite themes of all time. Playwright Gay Walley undoubtedly succeeds in exploring it in her play' - Review Fix
'Ms. Walley's complex script allows time and space to collapse into irrelevance and leaves room for a party attended by guests from different centuries and many other parallel conflicts' 
- Theatre Reviews Limited
'The ensemble cast brims with confidence and craft, and navigates the play's twenty six scenes with engaging performances and professionalism' - Off Broadway Reviews Limited
'A piece of great power, strong enough to force us all to question what is right and wrong' - EXAMINER REVIEWS
In this tautly written and riveting drama, a white police officer is accused of pushing an African-American teenage boy out of a window during a police chase. The effects of the tragic incident can, in a moment, forever redefine the lives of all those immediately connected to it. This relevant tale explores the malleability of guilt and innocence when pitted against prejudice and presumption, truth and sensationalism. As the former officer stands at the precipice of fate, neither he nor the boy can distinguish fact from fiction, certainty from doubt, guilt from innocence.

Love is worth surviving for. New York City, 1953. Two strangers meet at midnight in a run-down empty bar. Max has a secret up his sleeve, a shocking revelation that unearths a painful history they may not be able to face. A story of hope, fate, and the powerful endurance of the human spirit, The Second Sun is inspired by the true story of a young Holocaust survivor and the woman he loved.
'anxious and involving — the script, by Barry Malawer, teases at complex moral questions and the possibility of a did-he-do-it plot' 
- NY TIMES
