My overall impression

Soson’s play feels like an updated This Is Our Youth, with more laughs, more heart, and more characters to love to hate. Frighteningly realistic, The Lights Are Off addresses college drug use, relationships, abuse and violence with a refreshing poetry and candor. Bookended by beautiful live music, acted by a promising young ensemble, and co-produced by the ever-effervescent Priscilla Watson, TLAO and The Working Theatre are sure to be one of the stronger ensemble showings at the Fringe.
