Jailbait

When: Sept. 27-Oct. 7 2012

Boy, that title's going to get some people reading this blurb for all the wrong reasons, huh? Obvious jokes about pop singers, American Apparel and Disney stars out of the way, Deirdre O'Connor's new drama is about a couple of Boston high schoolers who age themselves up for a night on the town to meet older guys, which turns uncomfortable when they hit it off with a pair of thirtysomethings cruising for younger girls. Awkwardness and soul-searching ensue, and hopefully not much else. This is why I'm deeply uncomfortable talking to anyone younger-looking at bars, though mostly it just turns out they're like 22 and don't get your references to 1980s movies and you feel old. The production runs Thursdays–Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. through Oct. 7 as part of Burning Coal's Wait 'Til You See This series. —Zack Smith
