"Jailbait" by Deirdre O'Connor
Directed by - Andrea Vestrand
Jailbait is a witty yet incisive play that takes place over the course of one dizzying night at a club and follows the parallel journey of two fifteen-year-old girls and two thirty-something men. When this unlikely foursome collides, they discover surprising and dangerous compatibilities. Jailbait explores innocence, maturity, and the blurred lines between adolescence and adulthood. Smart, funny, and disturbing, Jailbait asks the question: When do you really become an adult?

CRITIC PUBLICATION REVIEWS
“... A terrific little play that finds something funny, shocking and sad about two fifteen-year-old girls who grow up fast when they con their way into a Boston club
...O'Connor is amazingly good at rendering the tonal pitch and vocal rhythms of overheard dialogue".
"... A complicated and darkly comic cautionary tale about the illusion of intimacy at any age... keenly honed dialogue, punctuated by little lies and poignant pauses".
“O'Connor provides a humorous take on the excitement and pitfalls of dating at any age, through a nightclub visit for four singles that will change each in different ways".
