Lillian, a young clerk in a department store, impulsively steals a watch from the store to replace the one Frederic, her boyfriend, lost. Over the next 24 hours both their lives twist and turn in ways they never expected.
"Exhilarating and electrifying theater. It is fast, it is inevitable, and it is, as tragedy should be, weirdly beautiful" (New York Daily News) Rose, Lilian and her boyfriend, Frederic, are faces in the crowd, striving for the promise of a richer life that beckons all around them, just beyond our grasp. On their night-long journey from innocence to experience, The Lights follows them across the landscape of an unnamed twentieth-century city haunted by desperation, hope, passion, corruption and the ghosts of its own past.
