NexStage to present ‘Brilliant Traces’

Play reading features matters of the heart

Express Staff Writer

"Brilliant Traces" by Cindy Lou Johnson is a romantic comedy that will be read at the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum by Charlotte Hemmings and Ben Flandro. The play reading will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m. The reading is free and complimentary wine and cookies will be served.

"The gist of the play is about a recluse living in Alaska and a girl shows up at the door in the middle of a blizzard in a wedding dress," said Jon Kane, the play reading's director. "It's about damaged people. Through the course of the play they discuss life and find one another."

Kane said the play lasts about an hour and it's very funny and entertaining.

"Brilliant Traces" is the first of the new season of play readings presented by the nexStage Theatre in Ketchum.

"The whole focus of the reading series is to present playwrights and their words," Kane said. "We tackle different types of plays and it's free. We're really excited about doing this play first and the new season of play readings."

Kane said he has two outstanding actors for "Brilliant Traces."

"I think it's a great script," he said. "I think people will really enjoy the evening."

The series will have five play readings through spring. The next reading will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 30, featuring "Via Dolorosa" by British dramatist David Hare. The play is about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through Hare's own 1997 journey through Israel and Palestine, and the 33 people whom he met during his travels.
