A door swings open on a darkened cabin in the Alaskan wilderness. Seeking refuge from a blizzard, a lost and bewildered young bride storms in, throwing herself on the mercy of the cabin's owner. After days of sleep the bride awakes, trapped with her unwitting host in the harshest and most isolated of places. They savagely attack and tenderly console each other, exploring the circumstances which led them both there. By turns vicious, ecstatic and heartfelt, Brilliant Traces follows the journey of two lonely and fractured people desperate to connect despite the strangest of settings and all that has come before.

"Even if Ms. Johnson had few other talents - and she seems to have many - one couldn't dispute her ability to grab an audience's immediate attention." -- Frank Rich, The New York Times

  1. I didn't realize this site was so old! It's 2011 and I am hoping to see the show during its run at the Arclight on West 71st. Can you please post a link for a newer site on the show or to one that might keep up with the production, playwright, etc.... ? Thanks! ~Gidgie
