"When people ask me why do I write, my answer is always the same. To be a pointer towards hope. What does that mean? The world is full of darkness, and I want my work regardless of form or theme, to be the neon blinking sign in the darkness that says hope this way."

What they're saying about The Light…
“What is impressive about the writing is how Webb keeps intensifying both the stakes and seriousness of the relationship even as she builds the threat of that which is tearing it apart.”
- Chicago Tribune
“A visceral play… Loy A. Webb writes great lines and great one-liners”
