Seating: General Admission
You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

HEY YOU, LIGHT MAN! reveals the story of Ashley Knight, a leading man who has decided to live onstage in the set of his current hit to escape from his oppressive family obligations. Lula Roca, herself in transition after a life crisis and seeking a home, has been accidentally locked in the theater. Ashley persuades her to come onstage, and then to stay with him for the night.

The story examines what transpires when one man’s escapism collides head-on with the harsh realities of life and responsibility, while one woman grappling with homelessness creates a new definition of what it means to be home. This romantic comedy, in the tradition of theater of the absurd, explores the universal conflict between daydream and reality.

Past Firebrand Theory productions include shows in Dublin, Winnipeg, Ohio, Minnesota, Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and Virginia.

“The work is sincere and honest,” writes the CBC-Manitoba, and The Irish Sunday Independent writes, “simple, accomplished and adult theatre in the best sense of the term: moving and mature.”

HEY YOU, LIGHT MAN! stars Christopher Lee (Bank Street Theater), Brazilian actress Elisa Gouveia (Tablado School of Theater), Gary Ferrar (Brooklyn Academy of Music), Heidi Azaro (Musical Theatre Works), Sari Caine (American Globe Theater Workshop), Sonya Tsuchigane (The Kraine Theatre), and Vance-allen Rawles (The Culture Project).

Director Jaime Robert Carrillo is a company member and associate producer for The Classical Theatre of Harlem, and a company member of The Bats at the Flea Theater. “He keeps the audience engaged and focused without ever allowing us to feel alienated,” writes Martin Denton of NYTheatre.com of Carrillo’s direction. New York directing credits include Firebrand Theory’s AUDELCO Award nominated Lynch Play. The design team includes: Amy Pedigo (Costumes), Anita La Scala (Set), Carrie Hash (Props), Adam Hale (Lighting).
