About the play:
In July 1977 the Son of Sam is on the loose and New York City is in the midst of a brutal heat wave. Two teenage friends sun themselves atop a row house. A younger sibling searches for her lost homework, while parents are consumed with their troubled marriage. A plan to stay out all night is complicated by a power outage, and a sudden loss of innocence.

Suitability: Due to strong language and mature themes, the production is recommended for mature audiences
