Harlowe

After suffering a potent physical trauma, Harlowe loses her sense of touch. When her sister brings her home to convalesce, she retreats to the bathroom and spends hour after hour languishing in the tub. HARLOWE is a story of sisters and bodies; it is a story of how we heal.

    From the opening page, I was completely drawn in to the beautiful language and imagery of this play. Harlowe's world, perspective, and grief are introduced with great delicacy and care, and Reese's struggle to find herself beyond her sister is deeply authentic. Lane's adeptness with metaphors of healing and rebirth enrich the narrative, and turn a compelling family drama into a near-transcendent meditation on the physical cost of being alive. Cannot recommend highly enough!

    A powerful story of pain, feeling and healing trauma. Beautifully done.

    An absolutely beautiful piece written by an obscenely talented playwright. It punches you in the gut, heals the pain with a few laughs, then drowns you in a pool.
