A Brief Crack of Light had two successful productions – in Minneapolis followed by Los Angeles. The script has gone through multiple edits since that time to polish it.
The title A Brief Crack of Light comes from one of James quotes: “The cradle rocks above an abyss. Our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness. Vladimir Nabokov. Famous writer.” It’s another way of getting the most out of life. The title was changed since there’s another play also titled Exit Strategy. Here’s a link to the A Brief Crack of Light first scene of the script. Enjoy!
