The Little Theatre

Wondering how to find the Little Theatre?

Legacy of Light is an intellectual joyride from start to finish that confronts a universal question: How do women balance a passionate yearning for science with maternal instinct?

Playwright Karen Zacarias takes two women, living 260 years apart, and juxtaposes their tragicomic stories of survival and immortality. Commissioned by Arena Stage and buoyantly directed by Molly Smith, Zacarias, doing her finest writing to date with Legacy of Light, equates the laws of physical science with human love and uses magical realism in some dreamlike moments to draw together her serendipitous stories.

Tickets: Tickets are $5 and can be reserved through the Ticket Reservation System
