Genre: Comedy
World Premiere of A.R. Gurney's new play presented by The Flea Theater

Directed by Flea Artistic Director Jim Simpson

A LIGHT LUNCH is a post-Bush cautionary tale about the price paid for legacy. When a young lawyer from Texas invites a literary agent for lunch in a New York City restaurant, more than a production is on the table.

Says Simpson, "This charming topical comedy about the O generation couldn't come at a better time. I am delighted to work again with a playwright as adept as Gurney and who cares so passionately about the state of current affairs. He is also a great fan of The Bats and wrote this piece specifically for the young actors in the company."

A LIGHT LUNCH star four members of The Bats: Havilah Brewster, Beth Hoyt, Tom Lipinski, and John Russo. The design team includes John McDermott (sets), Miranda Hardy (lights), Erin Murphy (costumes) and Jill BC DuBoff (sound).
