The Light

Thursday, March 03, 2022 to Sunday, March 13, 2022

Not every marriage proposal goes as planned… Loy A. Webb’s The Light  introduces us to Rashad and Genesis on what should be one of the happiest days of their lives, but their joy quickly unravels when ground- shifting accusations from the past resurface in this gripping two character drama.  Can their relationship survive the growing divide between them over who – and what – to believe? The Light is a reckoning that unfolds in real time and peels away the layers of truth, doubt, pain and ultimately, the power of love. 

This show is produced by the Black Theatre Troupe of Upstate NY.

“Wow, wow, wow! […] the hot button black #MeToo conflicts fire up The Light.” – New York Stage Review

“What is impressive about the writing is how Webb keeps intensifying both the stakes and seriousness of the relationship even as she builds the threat of that which is tearing it apart” – Chicago Tribune

“A visceral play […] Loy A. Webb writes great lines and great one-liners.” – The New York Times
