About This Show

In Sweetness & Light, an awkward but brilliant inventor falls fervently in love with a boisterous lamp tester and loses her when the company’s eccentric founder is caught in a financial panic. Two revolutionaries sort through personal and political tensions at the dawn of democracy. Set in present-day Pittsburgh and 1784 Paris the stories collide an uproarious skewering of industry and statecraft. Combining comedy, satire and pathos and underpinned by a cache of vibrant country and folk music, it questions America’s love affair with business, technology and itself.
