Take a Look at About Face Theatre's Bright Half Life
Patrese McClain and Elizabeth Ledo star in the production, directed by Keira Fromm.
About Face Theatre has released production photos from their production of Bright Half Life. Keira Fromm directs the production, which began performances on May 26 ahead of a June 1 opening night. The production will continue performances through July 1.
Tanya Barfield's play charts the complexity of commitment, relationships, and marriage as it follows the ups and downs of a modern lesbian couple. Their story is told through a series of fast-moving, fragmented memories — from elevator rides as strangers to steamy workplace romances to heartache to building a family. The couple is played by actors Elizabeth Ledo and Patrese McClain.
"I'm excited to feature Tanya Barfield's work, a fresh counterpoint to this season's historical pieces," comments About Face artistic director Andrew Volkoff. "Tanya's language is muscular and sparkles, but it was her inventive structure that captured me. She's created a verbal tilt-a-whirl for the audience, echoing the ins and outs of every modern relationship, that I think will speak to everyone who's ever been in love."
The creative team includes William Boles (scenic design), Melissa Ng (costume design), Chris Binder (lighting design), and Christopher Kriz (sound design). Helen Lattyak serves as the stage manager.
