Why See Bright Half Life?

Do you think forwards or do you think backwards?

The ephemeral nature of love and relationships are explored in this beautiful kaleidoscopic play from Pulitzer Prize nominee Tanya Barfield. Showing every facet of a long-term relationship from the giddy honeymoon stages to the bitter end, Bright Half Life is a love story that happens all at once, spanning decades in a heartbreaking and life affirming instant that'll make you laugh and cry this summer.

Following the story of Erica and Vicky as their lives collide and twist together tightly, we navigate marriage, children and discovering who you are apart and in partnership. Receiving its world premiere Off Broadway in February 2015, critics and audiences alike praised Barfield's virtuosic romance and non- linear approach to telling a story familiar to all of us.
