Allen Contemporary Theatre will present Moss Hart’s Light Up the Sky, which takes place in the hotel room of Broadway actress Miss Irene Livingston prior to the opening of a new play in an out-of-town tryout. Over the course of the evening, the play follows a truck-driver-turned-playwright watching his first play being produced in Boston.

The backstage comedy features the grandly temperamental leading lady; her sarcastic, gin-rummy-playing mother; the flamboyant director; the lowbrow producer; and his ice-skating, wisecracking wife. The opening night seems to go awry and the producer, cast, etc., believe it is a flop and turn against one another, against the producer and especially against their unlikely author. Will their fears of a flop be realized or is a hit show in the cards?
