When they are forced to confront a devastating secret from the past, a surprise proposal gift puts the future of Genesis and Rashad's relationship at risk. The Light is a 70-minute, real-time rollercoaster ride of laughter, romance and despair that uncovers how the power of radical love can be a healing beacon of light. Leigh Rondon-Davis and Kenny Scott are a couple in real life and these two exceptional actors will perform this play live in their own home!

We're thrilled to host two moderated post-show discussions for The Light to dive deeper into the themes of the show. These talk-backs will take place immediately after the performances on Sunday, December 6 and Sunday, December 13 and will be moderated by Amissa Miller and Lauren Spencer.
Themes discussed will include:
- Black love
- Dynamics between Black womxn and men, and how we can hold each other up
- Dynamics between womxn and men
- Violence against womxn and how our value is dependent on our relationships to men
