Brilliant Traces

Wednesday, 25 September 2019 to Saturday, 5 October 2019

A bedraggled woman in a wedding dress literally falls through the door of a hut in the Alaskan wilderness during a snow storm. It’s the refuge of a solitary man. The two circle each other as only strangers can, breaking through carefully constructed defensive barriers.

‘Brilliant Traces considers the life-affirming impact of compassion on deeply-troubled people who have lost their way, set adrift by the numbing pain that haunts them’ (DC Metro Theater Arts)

‘This 80-minute play thrives on surprises. Kisses crop up in the middle, deep sleep is disrupted by fear, and shoes find their way into the oven on our way to a new understanding of the necessity of connection.’ (Deborah Greenhut) 

‘Because of the darker aspects of their stories, we’re uncertain if we’re watching a tragic fantasy or a romantic comedy of a man and women battling it out until love conquers all. In fact, we’re not at all sure what will happen with these two misfits until the last moment. But even if we knew, we’d want to take this strangely familiar journey with them, which explains why Brilliant Traces has been produced over and over in three decades and in many languages.’ (TheaterJones reviews)
