Gaslight is proud to present its seventh installment of the original one-act series, Playroom, August 17-19 and 24-26, 2018. Created by playwright Matthew S. Hinton, Playroom uses the same set design to inspire writers to craft individual one-acts around the same space, resulting in an evening of short-form theatre that quickly ebbs and flows through provoking and laugh-out-loud moments. FOR MATURE AUDIENCES.
