The Light


When they are forced to confront a devastating secret from the past, a surprise proposal gift puts the future of Genesis and Rashad's relationship at risk. The Light is a 70-minute, real-time rollercoaster ride of laughter, romance, and despair that uncovers how the power of radical love can be a healing beacon of light. Leigh Rondon-Davis and Kenny Scott are a couple in real life and these two exceptional actors will perform this play live in their own home!

Written by Loy A. Webb & Directed by Nailah Harper-Malveaux


How to watch The Light on demand

You will have an option to add a promotional code later for pay-what-you-can pricing. Please note that all promotional codes are listed in the video's description on Vimeo!
-In the pop-up that appears, you'll either log in to your existing Vimeo account, or you'll be asked to create a new account. You must make an account, as that's what attaches your video to you! Making an account is free and just requires your name and preferred email.
