A man and a woman meet, seemingly for the first time. Can one single encounter alter the course of their lives?

The Optic Trilogy is composed of three stories, each one a duet between strangers. A tourist has a dalliance with a rent boy she has summoned from the Yellow Pages. A nervous photographer meets a beautiful blind model. A woman audaciously proposes marriage to a man she has just met on the Internet.

Possibly the playwright’s most lyrical work, The Optic Trilogy is a meditation on memory and perception, capturing the poetry of chance meetings in a cold and pitiless urbanscape. In each of the stories, the characters discover how the shock of human contact may lead to the possibility of redemption, forgiveness and even love.
