by Andrea Stephenson - Oct 3, 2019

Brilliant Traces, by Cindy Lou Johnson, was first performed in New York by the Circle Repertory Company.

Featuring just two actors, it relies heavily on intelligent directing and talented acting-it can easily become melodramatic and ridiculous or inane and boring. Thankfully, the production of Brilliant Traces at DreamWrights Center for Community Arts, directed by Andrea Unger and featuring Kirk Wisler and Catie Dinneen as Henry Harry and Rosannah Deluce, is both well-directed and well-acted.
