A student actor wearing a baseball-style t-shirt that reads 'Too Much Light' performs with their arms stretched out. A sign in the background reads, 'Step 9: Get a couple of friends.' The numbers 21, 22, 23 are printed large on individual sheets of 8.5 x 11 inch paper and pinned to a clothesline that across the entire stage.
