Jailbait


Sep 27 – Oct 7, 2012

Written by Deirdre O'Connor

Directed by Christine Zagrobelny

In Jailbait, high school sophomores Claire and Emmy, posing as college students, sneak into a Boston nightclub to meet ‘boys.’ Mark thinks a night out with attractive college girls is exactly what his friend, Robert, needs to recover from his recent breakup. Thrown together for a night, these adolescents on the cusp of maturity and thirty-somethings still trying to figure it all out, discover unexpected and dangerous compatibilities. But when Emmy encounters the sexual expectations of the slick Mark and Claire finds herself surprisingly drawn to the heartbroken Robert, both girls must decide how far they are willing to go while playing at adulthood. Smart, funny, and disturbing, Jailbait asks the question: When do you really become an adult?

Jailbait contains mature content and is not recommended for children under 16.
