Light of Night is the story of one woman’s unraveling into a dark underworld of desire, power and abuse.  Stephanie’s charismatic husband, Jim, and seductive best friend Isabel compete for the limits of her identity. To emerge from the darkness and be free, Stephanie must abandon the world as it was handed to her. Raw, stripped down and verbally lucid, Light of Night is Vanguard Theater that lifts the veil on the psychology of oppression and offers up the fragile beauty of hope.
