“Nothing, not even the tiniest particle, disappears without a trace,” Hildegard von Bingen declares to Sophie, a scientist and wife grappling with multiple miscarriages. Refusing to leave the house, Sophie reads constantly and imagines lively conversations with Bingen, Albert Einstein and Earnest Shackleton, who speak a hope that she struggles to hear. A selection of Renaissance Theaterworks’ 2017 BR!NK New Play Festival, The Endurance of Light is a real and whimsical story about faith in all its void and form.
