Running the Gamut: Lightning and Jellyfish

When: Thu., Dec. 5, 7 p.m. 2013

Set in a rock-and-roll poster shop in the '80s, "Lightning and Jellyfish" takes a realistic one-set play and explodes it, taking us into the hearts—and futures—of its characters.

It's about an evening in the life of a young woman on the brink of change--change that she's trying to convince herself that she's ready for. Realism vs. romanticism. Youth and frustration. Coming-of-age as a process rather than as moment. It's about what we forgive in others and ourselves. It's about making a connection right now. It's about how to enjoy Human League without expecting it to be The Beatles.
