Vicky and Erica have just met. Or have they? They’ve been in love for decades. Or have they? They’ve just broken up, and we’re about to experience their relationship in all its glory. Follow these women back and forth through time as we view and review the significant events in their relationship and discover the way that the human heart really works. We live, we love, we lose, but nothing happens in order. Instead, it is always and forever unfolding and unfurling, filling us up and pulling away from us. Like a star, or a satellite as it orbits the Earth, so goes the relationship between Vicky and Erica.

About Bright Half Life director Kim Ward says, “What was most striking about this play, when I discovered it, was that it could be the story of any couple, regardless of gender identity or sexual orientation, and every actor who read for the part said the same thing. The truth is that it is simply a love story. It shows how we, as human beings, live in a fragile bubble of hope and expectation, hurt and inner strength.” Ms. Ward’s talented cast consists of Carly Bennet (Burlington) and Fabienne Nadeau (Milton).

Performance dates for this New England premiere are Sunday July 22nd and Friday July 27th, both at 7:30 PM.
