SHEDDING LIGHT by Rich Orloff

£5.00

A two-character drama with humor, SHEDDING LIGHT begins at dusk on December 22, 1999, just before the millennium. An African-American cable repairman of about fifty arrives in a Manhattan high-rise apartment to fix the cable reception of a Jewish woman of the same age. What begins as awkward banter builds into increasingly challenging and personal questions about race and religion, both for the man, still recovering from old wounds, and the woman, who is having a crisis of faith after a traumatic year.
