Brontosaurus Haircut Productions makes its New York debut with Sun and Room, a play—written by Danny Rocco and directed by Shannon Fillion—about three college kids hanging out on a Friday night, from sunset to sunrise. A moving painting as much as a play, Sun and Room is a rich and candid view into the lives of its characters whose language, connections, misconnection, and vulnerabilities drive the realistic narrative about teenage life. 

Sun and Room was commissioned in 2013 by the Theatre Department at Fort Lewis College, a small liberal arts school in Durango, Colorado where Danny Rocco served as Visiting Assistant Professor of Playwriting the previous year. The play was written specifically for the voices of Leah Brewer, Matthew Socci, and Zoë Pike, three Drama students at the college. After a sold-out run in Durango in November 2013, the play was selected to participate in the Region VIII Kennedy Center American College Theater Festival (KC/ACTF) in Los Angeles in February 2014. Directed by Shannon Fillion, the 2015 production will be the New York premiere of the play, and the New York debut of the talented actors and designers who created it.
