Bulgarian bestselling author and playwright, Zachary Karabashliev, was featured in California with his award-winning play "Sunday Evening."

The performances were held May 25th and 26th at the Tallgrass Pictures Studio in San Diego.

The play was directed by Jeffrey Lamont Brown while the cast included American actors Stephanie Philo, Benjamin Mathes, Catalina Maynard, Camelia Dee, Dave Rivas, and Joshhua Hershfield.

The performances had been a great success with standing ovations. On the evening of the debut there has been an hour-and-a-half long questions and answers session with people from the audience asking many questions and offering comments on the play.

"It was terrific. Text and audience met and this is what THEATER is all about. And this is still wokk in porgress," Karabashliev told Novinite.com, adding this great success had been achieved by three days of rehearsals only, and giving high marks to the cast for "their professionalism, spirit and ideals."

In 2009, the play – a comedy-drama about two families, a secret they share, and a rainy Sunday evening, received the highest Bulgarian award for dramaturgy.

On the same day "Sunday Evening" took the San Diego stage, Karabashliev's bestseller "18% Gray" made its debut in France where it was published in French.
