Brilliant Traces

A remote cabin in the wilds of Alaska. Fate, a runaway bride and a cynical recluse converge in a match of wills to echo the raging blizzard outside. A kooky exploration of love, loss and the unlikely places we find sanctuary. Produced jointly with TMJ Productions.

Linder and Poirier paint their characters with subtle yet purposeful strokes.

Emotionally charged performances plus conceptually intriguing writing = a great theatre experience. I know what I need to do with that particular pair of shoes now also ... thanks!

This show will touch you and wake and shake you up, days after you see it! Linder and Poirier work so well together, you forget how much work goes into doing this kind of an intense performance! Miriam Monasch has staged it to the stars' advantage, both visually and vocally. Watching this show reminded me that we are all so close to the line, and can go either way depending on the heart of the person nearest us. Bravo and Brava to Linder and Poirier!

Burnt shoes, junk food and oil rigs-what do these have in common? A comedy-tragedy with existential concerns. Poirer and Linder are brilliant as the couple with secrets and emotional challenges. A great script by Cindy Lou Johnson and well directed by Miriam Monasch. Go See.

Linder and Poirier do a wonderful job with these characters. In lesser hands, they could have easily been reduced to a "movie-of-the-week"-type cliches, but the performances held my interest throughout this very touching hour.
