BRIGHT HALF LIFE

by Tanya Barfield

directed by Steven Kunis

What if life came with a rewind button?

 

Jumping across time, Bright Half Life tells the four-and-a-half-decade story of Vicky and Erica, who meet, fall in love, start a family, and traverse the highs, lows, joys, and fears that come from sharing your life with someone else.

 

Author of the ground-breaking Pulitzer Prize-nominated play BLUE DOOR, Tanya Barfield writes a contemporary classic about love, heartbreak, skydiving, and the infinite moments that make up a relationship. Depicting queer love in the richest and most original of ways, Bright Half Life is an intensely romantic and moving play depicting love that is complicated and ever-changing.
