The Law Makes Evening Fall

Institute History

  • 1996 Playwrights Lab


“The Law Makes Evening Fall” is set in a center for children with auditory processing problems. A man who has always believed in hearing loses his faith, as a mysterious woman invites him to fall in love, and look for God – or maybe not. What is certain is that she makes him doubt both his ability to understand anything he hears, and anyone’s ability to understand him. Heaven is also in on the confusion.


As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
