NOW PLAYING: Silhouette Theatre Company Presents JAILBAIT thru 8/5

NOW PLAYING: Silhouette Theatre Company Presents JAILBAIT thru 8/5Silhouette Theatre Company presents the first show of its 2012/2013 Season – the regional premiere of JAILBAIT by Deirdre O’Connor playing now through August 5th. 

Through the course of one dizzying night at a club, Jailbait follows the parallel stories of two fifteen-year-old girls, desperate to grow up, and two thirty-something men who are looking to be twenty-one again. High-school sophomores Claire and Emmy make a game of posing as college students in order to meet older men. Brash bachelor Mark thinks a night out with attractive girls will be just what his friend Robert needs to recover from his recent breakup. When this unlikely foursome collides, they discover some surprising and dangerous compatibilities. But when Emmy encounters the sexual expectations of the slick Mark, and Claire finds herself surprisingly drawn to the heartbroken Robert, both girls must decide how far they are willing to go while playing at adulthood. Smart, funny, and disturbing, JAILBAIT asks the question: When do you really become an adult?

The cast, under direction of Johanna Jaquith, includes Brian Brooks as Mark, Michelle Hurtubise as Claire, Cortney Patston as Emmy and Ryan Wuestewald as Robert.

Some of Deirdre O’Connor’s other plays include Assisted Living (Profiles Theatre, Chicago), Hero (Naked Angels, Armed and Naked in America), and Penicillin (Naked Angels, The Mag 7). Deirdre was a 2008 Cherry Lane Mentor Project Fellow mentored by Michael Weller. Deirdre is a 2008-2009 Lark Playwrights Workshop Fellow. She is a graduate of Hampshire College, and Columbia University 's MFA Playwriting program where she was the recipient of the John Golden Playwriting Award. Deirdre won an Emmy Award for her writing on “The Electric Company” on PBS.

Silhouette Theatre Company's JAILBAIT will be presented at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 6:30 p.m. on Sundays through August 5th at the John Hand Theater in Lowry (7653 E. 1st Place) in Denver, CO. For tickets or more information, contact the box office at 303-999-9143 or online at www.silhouettetheatrecompany.org. Silhouette Theatre Company specializes in producing shows that will challenge the mind and soul.
