    THE LIGHT is a gorgeous, personal, and political play that contains explosive multitudes in its seemingly slim frame. Companies across the country should give this gift to its audiences.

    This is frankly one of the best plays I've ever seen. You will find yourself slowly but inescapably drawn in by Gen and Shad, with all their wit and grace and flaws and secrets. The Light is a truly important play, timely now but meaningful in a way that will echo down the decades.

    A deceptively simple exploration of several complex, multi-faceted, and difficult topics handled with grace and compassion. Genesis and Rashad are two well-developed, flawed, yet likable protagonists who are both trying to be the change they want to see in the world, and both of their perspectives are well-articulated and valid. Thought-provoking and timely, "The Light" challenges us to LISTEN to each other, and to be better towards one another.
