A play about secrets, so well hidden, so intense, the best way to keep them...is to forget.
"An Angel Cried A Tear Last Night...is a journey through a girl's life, a girl with a secret so deep and dark she thinks that she must be insane.
"I must be crazy. My dad wouldn't do that to me." She is a little girl who fears growing old, not for the conventional reasons, but because she hates what adults do.
A little girl tries to disappear into the wrinkles of blankets and the rainbow reflections of rainbows on a window... Marschak's gradual piercing of that fog, and the slow summoning of courage to confront the secret, is portrayed with searing honesty and wrenching compassion.
It's brilliant must-see acting." -Edmonton Journal
