July 27-August 6
Rashad and Genesis have just gotten engaged. To celebrate, he wants to take her to a show by a local Chicago musician who’s made it big. When she refuses, revealing that the rapper assaulted a friend in college, the celebration is cut short. As their discussion grows into an argument, more secrets are exposed, and the past threatens to overshadow their future.
Christina Franklin returns for her third summer to direct and coordinate costumes. Suzu Sakai designs scenery. Lara Dubin will be lighting the show, and James McNamara will design sound. Kelsey Rainwater will serve as the intimacy coordinator.
The Light is a “story of revelation, redress, and hopeful reconciliation cued at the intersection of #MeToo and Black Lives Matter.” (Stage Left)
