Bright Half Life Presented in Partnership with WAM Theatre


“If these women, these maybe soul mates, could somehow suddenly see what the years will bring, would they still go out on that first date?” – The New York Times

Presented in partnership with WAM Theatre and the Berkshire Stonewall Community Coalition in celebration of Pride Month, join us for a reading of Bright Half Life, a kaleidoscopic play about love, heartbreak, skydiving, and the infinite moments that make a relationship. Hailed by The New Yorker as a “well-written portrayal of smart women finding, losing, and finding themselves and each other again,” Bright Half Life follows the deep and complicated love story of Vicky and Erica.

A discussion with the artists follows the reading.

Bright Half Life is part of WAM Theatre’s series Fresh Takes featuring readings of new groundbreaking plays.

Bright Half Life is written by Tanya Barfield and directed by Gina Kaufmann.
