The Light

Written by Loy A. Webb

Directed by Christina Franklin

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.


The Light is a “story of revelation, redress, and hopeful reconciliation cued at the intersection of #MeToo and Black Lives Matter.” (Stage Left)


Christina Franklin, director of 2022’s Pass Over and 2021’s The Niceties (both Berkshire Theatre Critics Award nominated) returns for her third season at CTC. Lara Dubin designs lights and James McNamara provides sound design.
