Had they previously met somewhere else under different circumstances? Why is their love so troubling for their children? Indeed, the light at dusk is sometimes warmer and more enveloping than that of the midday sun. Characters navigate between being and appearance, between cowardice and dissoluteness.

As a playwright, Mighton has been the recipient of the prestigious Siminovitch Prize in Theatre, two Governor General’s Literary Awards for Drama, the Dora Award, and the Chalmers Award. His plays include Possible Worlds, A Short History of Night, and Half Life.

Half Life was first co-produced at Tarragon with Necessary Angel Theatre in February 2005.
