How the Light Gets In

A travel writer who never travels. A Japanese architect who can’t figure out how to build a simple tea house. A tattoo artist who refuses to draw on a woman’s skin. And a homeless girl who lives under a weeping willow tree in the Japanese Garden. A romantic comedy (of sorts) about four lonely people who find each other when one of them falls apart.

    HOW THE LIGHT GETS IN is an uplifting take on loneliness and the positive consequences that happen when you tie yourself to the strangers around you. Lovely story.

    Profoundly charming, profoundly heartbreaking, profoundly uplifting. A treasure indeed.

    I attended a reading of this play in January 2018 that I find myself still thinking about a year later. This play is human, poetic, devastating, and hopeful. It's a small treasure.
