“Loy Webb’s plays creates a neon sign in the darkness”
In His Shadow, an aspiring football player confronts his brother’s legacy and the price of protesting.
Loy A. Webb, author of His Shadow (Sept 5 – Oct 12, 2019), was interviewed in the Chicago Reader by Catey Sullivan.
In conversation with Sullivan, Loy shares:
“After The Light played off-Broadway, I had people telling me how much the show inspired them. I have college students asking me to send them monologues. I write to point toward hope. I want my work to be a neon sign in the darkness: This way out. This way to hope.” — Loy Webb
