Barefoot in Nightgown by Candlelight



Barefoot in Nightgown by Candlelight comes from the mind of American playwright Don Nigro, a multiple nominee for the National Repertory Theatre Foundation’s National play award for two of his previous works. The play follows three young girls in boarding school who, on every full moon, play a game of “mistress and slave.” The mistress tells the slave to do their bidding, while the third girl must watch. As the play progresses, the challenges grow more severe. The set is simple, relying more on actors than props or fancy effects, but the punches of lighting add just the right amount of intrigue. It’s a bold, dark, and enthralling look into the life of teenage girls.  With a runtime of around 45 minutes, it’s worth checking out if you’re looking to fill some time but are worried about your schedule. -Alexander Sorochan

    This play is intriguing and titallating in a sense that it could definitely be developed into so much more. The 20 minute time feels like they swipied your money for not near enough entertainment value. Well done within those 20 minutes though.

    Engaging performance, but certainly could have been developed further. At just 16 minutes in length, this play left me feeling cheated.

    The show was very well done and I would definitely recommend seeing it. When I checked it was closer to 25- 30 min. run time.


    “Could have been developed further” is an understatement. I kind of felt like I was at a reading rather than a production, with half of the short play spent with an actor in the role of narrator.
