Kamilah Forbes directs the work that will run through Dec. 8. The cast includes Jelks, Harvey Gardner Moore and Dewanda Wise.

According to the Labyrinth, the production is described as such: "East New York, Brooklyn. Nina's estranged father, a former black revolutionary, reappears to obtain a piece of her deceased mother's legacy. A powerful and honest story of one woman's journey to survive the harsh realities of her world, Sunset Baby is an energetic, daring look at the point where the personal and political collide."

The creative team includes Amatus (composer and sound designer), Esosa (costume design), Jen Schriever (lighting design) and Lee Savage (scenic design).
