The Last Sunday

Welcome to The Last Sunday!

Our 4th season has just concluded on May 30th, 2021, so stay tuned for our season 5 announcement!


Welcome, 

Sum Theatre friends and family, to The Last Sunday! Please join us on the last Sunday of each month (October – May) for exciting creations in response to the month’s current events. You will see work from playwrights, musicians, ranters, and a hot seat interview. All in one action packed hour. 

There is a lot going on in the world and the Last Sunday is here to help us digest our current moment. We hope these performances and the discussions they generate will help build a better community.

“It’s theatre of the now,” says artistic director Joel Bernbaum. “Art is more relevant than it has ever been before. It has the power to take people down a new path of understanding the world around them. We believe these performances and the discussions they generate will build a better community.”
