Darnell Williams and Tamara Scott in Mark Eisman's Sightlines.

Take a journey with two strangers that come together in the strangest of places, grasping in the dark for a human connection that will guide them out of the "rabbit hole."

In Sightlines, Ruth finds life is a series of betrayals that have led her to tread between a lonely reality and a dreamlike revision of herself. She meets Davis who will help her navigate an ever-blurring world.

Out of the darkness and into the light. Out of the light and into the darkness, they smash their way "through the looking-glass" into a Lewis Carroll world and a love story defying conventional perceptions.

Walk into the cell and be transported into Eisman's Wonderland with Naomi Olson's photographs of the blind community in Hawaii, featuring tactile imagery and sound clips. Round the corner and you're in a dark room of work by the Seeing With Photography Collective, a local collective of sighted, visually-impaired, and blind photographers. The Collective's process creates luminous distortions, blurred or glowing forms resulting entirely from their photo technique, provoking the viewer or perceiver to ask, "What is seeing? What does one choose to see?"

Sightlines stars Emmy and NAAPC Image Award winning Darnell Williams *, best known for his work as Jesse in "All My Children." Williams created the role of Jacob Foster on ABC's "Loving" and has been seen on "Law & Order," "ER," "Felicity," and "NYPD Blue"; film credits include "Shadowboxer," "Short Cuts," and "Sidewalk Stories"; New York theatre credits include "Angels in America," "Checkmates," "Wit," "Blackout," "Guilty," and "Spalding Gray: Stories Left to Tell." Williams received his fourth Emmy nomination in 2010 for AMC, and won the NAACP IMAGE AWARD for his work on AMC.

Co-starring is Tamara Scott * whose New York credits include work with New York Classical Theatre (The Seagull), the Ohio Theatre, Synchronicity Space, and The 78th Street Playhouse. Regional credits include Charlotte Rep, Playhouse on the Square, and Two River Theater Company.

Written by 2-time Emmy Award and the American Theater Critics' Association's Best New American Play nominee, Mark Eisman, who has written for "Jeopardy," "Reading Rainbow," and "The Great Space Coaster," Sightlines was first presented at the Eugene O' Neill National Playwrights Conference and was the first full-length play published in The Kenyon Review. Eisman's Shove won the LA WEEKLY's Best Playwright Award and Abingdon Theatre's 2007 Christopher Brian Wolk Award for playwriting excellence. He is also the recipient of a NY state playwriting fellowship, a Writers Guild screenwriting
fellowship, two Beverly Hills Theater Guild/Julie Harris Playwriting Awards, the Charles MacArthur Fellowship and a playwriting scholarship from Primary Stages Theater.
