As part of their Echo Reads series, Echo Theatre will present Bright Half Life by Tanya Barfield.
Bright Half Life follows Erica and Vicki through the ups and downs of their relationship over the course of 1985-2031. Scenes are told a-chronologically, hopping between multiple points in their life within each scene. The play is a moving love story that spans decades in an instant: marriage, children, skydiving, and the infinite moments that make a life together.
Barfield's play Blue Door was a 2015 Pulitzer Prize nominee.
In Echo Reads, directors lightly rehearse readings of plays with professional actors who carry their scripts as they perform for the audience. After the Zoom reading, the audience is invited to stay and discuss the play with the actors, director, and Echo creatives in a casual conversation online.
Admission is free; donations accepted.
