This holiday season we are presenting Light Sensitive, a romantic bittersweet comedy by Jim Geoghan!

The previously scheduled Scenes from Shakespeare is postponed until 2024.

Light Sensitive is a full-length dramatic comedy, directed by Avilynn Pwyll.

In this bittersweet comedy about three unforgettable New Yorkers that takes place during the eight days between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, two lost souls meet in New York’s inhospitable Hell’s Kitchen.

Tom, a blind embittered ex-cabbie who has become reclusive, played by Dan Vanek, and Edna (Lisa Posternak), an introverted woman who has also isolated herself from the rest of the world. Lou, Tom’s only friend played by Jake Hamlin, enlists Edna to take care of Tom. An epic battle of wills and wits ensues that proves, once and for all, that beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder.
