Provocative, powerful, personal. A tale that focuses with deft precision... could be this generation’s Crimes of the Heart... Miller is a standout with such a subtle delivery that when she has a cathartic moment it is heart wrenching. A new gem of a show... there is no doubt that Miller has a very strong piece on her hands. Be sure to keep an eye on Rebecca Louise Miller.
This is not your typical survivors-in-recovery story; Miller’s approach is wondrously grown up... The great thing about Fault Lines is that, while it’s rooted in an event that happened two decades in the past, it is always about the present, and how each moment leads to a next moment that must be lived, dealt with, decided... Miller herself appears as Jessica in a smart, restrained performance. Fault Lines is Miller’s first play; she is definitely a talent to keep an eye on.
Miller’s dialogue is sensitive, even poetic, and she fully imagines the situation.
Skillful storytelling and realistic, witty, and pointed dialogue... the vivid personalities of the characters and sparkling dialogue never let the seriousness of the story sink to the maudlin... cascades towards a satisfying, thought-provoking finish.
Passionate, plausible and devastating... Fault Lines is a fascinating experience. Miller’s script is both insightful and respectful of an issue that could feel indulgent in the wrong hands... Miller is a playwright to watch.
A taut 80 minute Off-Off Broadway experience.
A thoughtful, moving meditation on loss, horror, and the different ways good people find to cope. 4 out of 4 Stars
Fault Lines examines both the depth and length of childhood pain and the fact that sometimes there is no definitive solution to easing our suffering. No matter the length of life, there is never enough time and there is no longer such a thing as private grief as we witness lives lived for the camera. I highly recommend this play. When going, be prepared to ponder some hard questions about life in a world getting ever smaller. The subject matter may be difficult for those under 17, but it would lead to a conversation of depth and meaning.
Hauntingly beautiful script... I surrendered myself to their stories.... I left behind not a theatre, but an intimate, compassionate encounter with three real characters.
... many exchanges which crackle to life in this strong play by Rebecca Louise Miller, a new Scottish talent of note.
