Editorial Reviews

Earth and Sky is an award-winning urban noir mystery play that depicts the shadowy, gritty underlife of Chicago and its corrupt, and often murderous, ways.

In this realistic dramatized performance - led by an all-star cast of performers, including four-time Academy Award nominee Annette Bening; Chicago theater veteran and Frasier father, John Mahoney; and multiple Emmy Award nominee, Ed Begley, Jr. - we hear of bodies, bullets, cops and criminals, and the fine line between good and evil.

For fans of the classic, hardboiled crime prose of James M. Cain, Raymond Chandler, and Dashiell Hammett.

Publisher's Summary

Head firmly in the clouds, Sara McKeon moves in the rarefied world of library work and poetry readings. She seems completely unsuited to investigating the sudden brutal murder of her lover. A haunting mystery, infused with humor, poetry, and urban grit. Performed by a full cast starring Annette Bening, Ed Begley Jr., John Mahoney, Steven Weber, and more.

Difficult to figure out with too may words.

Too much explanation at end and hard to follow. Annette Benning was the worst actor in the production. So phony sounding. David and the detective were good and so was the killer at the end. Also, the whole story was very theatrical and unrealistic. Maybe Warren Beatty helped produce this nonsense.
