Rising Sun Performance Company Presents “Brilliant Traces”
Lonesome hermit Henry Harry lives alone in a tiny cabin in the wilds of Alaska, content with his life of isolation. Rosannah DeLuce is a runaway bride whose escape has led her from Arizona to “The Last Frontier.” During a raging blizzard, Rosannah winds up at Henry’s doorstep, still in her wedding dress and needing shelter from the storm. Snowbound together in the small space, the two strangers discover they have something in common: life has proven difficult, and trying to escape society hasn’t helped. As Henry and Rosannah exchange barbs and relive the past, they may find redemption, and even romance, if they don’t wind up killing each other first. As the New York Times observed, this poignant, absurdist play “…deals with common issues of love and family, and does so with characters, story and dialogue so fantastic that they could exist only within the enchanted realm of the stage.”<p>
Rising Sun Performance Company
Where some theater outfits have a mission, Rising Sun Performance Company has a manifesto. Amongst the many values it champions, the group declares the power of fostering talent, lauds a take-no-prisoners attitude, and reminds members that “no one is too good to sweep and mop the stage.” That tongue-in-cheek touch perfectly captures the spirit of the Off-Off Broadway ensemble, which has received accolades for its youthful enthusiasm and camaraderie. Now celebrating “12 years of effervescence,” the company’s adherence to the ideals of ensemble theater, and smart selections of daring dramas and offbeat comedies, have made them the buttered toast of critics and audiences alike.
