Bright Half Life

When: Feb. 16-March 4 2017

Tanya Barfield's Bright Half Life has a lot in common with Duncan Macmillan's Lungs, which Sonorous Road staged last September. Both are two-character dramas focused on chronic overthinkers in love, and both propel us through decades of couples' lives with the hand brake off. But Barfield's work differs from Macmillan's in two crucial respects. The dyad in Bright Half Life is lesbian and interracial, and instead of progressing in chronological order, the play flips through their crucial and resonant moments seemingly at random. Lives flash before our eyes as Jules Odendahl-James directs JoRose and Tamara Kissane in this regional premiere. —Byron Woods
