A blizzard rages outside a remote cabin in the wilds of Alaska. Rosannah, a distraught young woman still dressed for her wedding, bursts into the cabin where a man lay sleeping under many blankets.

Thrown together in the confines of a snowbound cabin the two people alternately repel and attract each other as they explore the pain of their pasts and, eventually, consider the possibilities of the present.

Brilliant Traces was written by Cindy Lou Johnson and features two actors, Defunkt’s own Elizabeth Jackson (also the Director) and Matt Smith.

The play is onstage May 17-June 8, Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 2 pm at The Back Door Theater, 4319 SE Hawthorne Blvd. There will be a special post-show Talk-Back May 25 with the cast and Team Defunkt.

All tickets at the door are Pay-What-You-Can for all performances. Advance reservations available at defunktheatre.com
