Bright Half Life by Tanya Barfield

Produced by the Magic Theatre

The Reuff Theatre at The Strand, San Francisco

November - December 2015



Director Jessica Holt stages the action so that every nuance that passes between Sarah Nina Hayon’s composed, managerial Vicky and Lisa Anne Porter’s impulsive, over-thinking and disorganized Erica is as up-close-and-personal as possible.                                                    -- Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle


Holt’s direction — unsentimental, gracefully and creatively blocked on the small stage, crisply paced, sensitive to nuances of emotion and to the script’s abrupt changes of mood (which the actors finesse seamlessly) — is superb.

                  -- Jean Schiffman, San Francisco Examiner
