Brilliant Traces

Filed under: Listings,Press Releases — offoffbway @ 8:51 pm

A revival of Cindy Lou Johnson’s play BRILLIANT TRACES, which was originally produced by the sadly defunct Circle Repertory Company. Those who are doing the reviving (veracious reflection theatre company) have a few words to share about why they are doing it. Read on:

by Cindy Lou Johnson

First presented by New York’s prestigious Circle Repertory Company,
this richly imaginative absurdist allegory used fantastic and often
outlandish situations and characterizations to probe into the nature
of modern relationships, both sexual and otherwise.
“Brilliant Traces is kooky, weird and definitely off-kilter, but if
taken in the right spirit, illuminating about how we live today.” — BackStage
“…deals with common issues of love and family, and does so with
characters, story and dialogue so fantastic that they could exist only
within the enchanted realm of the stage.” — NY Times
“Brilliant Traces is one of those plays in which a man and woman
battle it out in a small enclosed space, alternately repulsing and
seducing each other.” — The New Yorker

why it has been revived:
This timeless journey through the trails of regret, love, frustration,
and relationship is as relevant now as it ever was. As a company,
this work portrays much of what we believe is missing in most of
theatre today, by taking risks and delving deep into issues that some
would be too afraid to touch.
