7:30 PM Light Up The Sky

This satire revolves around a group of New York theater-folk opening a new show in Boston. As the opening night mood swings from optimistic camaraderie to terror of failure and angry recriminations, the friends start to turn against each other. It turns out however, that in spite of the curious reception of the opening night audience, the reviews are favorable and the tables turn once again, but not before the playwright has decided that he is through with the theater.
