Directed by Ellie Heyman

It is July 1977. Son of Sam is on the loose and New York City is in the midst of a brutal heat wave. Sixteen year-old Mary Claire, and her best friend, Mary Francis, start that day sunning themselves on the roof of an Ozone Park row house. Younger sister, Reenie, is searching for her lost Greek Mythology class project, while their parents are consumed by the battles of their troubled marriage. The boy-crazy Marys hatch a plan to stay out all night, but an overstressed electrical grid leads to a city-wide blackout and a sudden loss of innocence.

Performers include Jennifer Ellis, Liz Leimkuhler, Nate Miller, Hadley Robinson, and Auden Thornton.
