In JAILBAIT, two fifteen-year-old girls spend a night at a Boston club posing as college students. When the girls cross paths with two thirty-something men, they must decide how far they are willing to go while playing at adulthood.

The cast of JAILBAIT includes Kelly AuCoin (SOME MEN), Peter O'Connor (THE SEXUAL NEUROSES OF OUR PARENTS), Natalia Payne (ALIENS WITH EXTRAORDINARY SKILLS), and Wrenn Schmidt (CRAZY FOR THE DOG).

The production has scenic design by Kina Park, costume design by Rebecca Bernstein, lighting design by Pat Dignan and sound design by Daniel Kluger and Brandon Wolcott.
