Davis (portrayed by Daytime Emmy Award Winner, Darnell Williams) and Ruth (portrayed by Tamara Scott) are two strangers desperate to make a human connection in Sightlines, by Emmy Award nominee Mark Eisman. In this intimate two-person play, Ruth struggles with bitter sense that her life has been little more than a series of betrayals, which has caused her to blur the lines between reality and an unreal, dreamlike sense of self. When she meets Davis, and he extends a helping hand, they smash through an ever-blurring reality into a Lewis Carroll-like world in a love story that defies most conventional preconceptions. This unique production unfolds in an otherworldly set that is a true feast for the senses, accompanied by a haunting original score. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- "What a tour-de-force performance it is ... really hits the damned spot." --Entertainment Weekly
- "What Cumming is doing at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre is delivering a tour-de-force that redefines the term." --Associated Press
- "it produced, in me at least, the thump of dread you want in Macbeth and seldom get ... Every element of the design -- set, sound, costume, video, lighting -- is ideally tailored to the concept ... [Cumming's] voice for verse, with those big Scots vowels, is outstanding. He’s tireless and brave in enacting a difficult story." --Vulture
- "All will appreciate the stirring turn by Cumming packing theatrical thunder and lightning. Fitting for the asylum setting of this “Macbeth,” Cumming is fully committed." --New York Daily News
- "It’s an audacious interpretation, not simply in the enormity of the task (Cumming is center of attention for the best part of two hours), but in the way it internalizes the wide-ranging political drama of the original and turns it into a distressing vision of mental disorder." --Variety
