Highways Performance Space presents American Standard: A Story of Enough, written by and starring Lilly Bright. Directed by award-winning soloist performer, Valerie Hager, the show will run from Thursday, September 19 through Saturday, September 28, 2019.

This original solo show is based on Bright’s true life story of surviving a near two-decade battle with bulimia and various “not-enough” demons, propelling her on an often comical, always poignant search for a cure, resulting in discovery of a path to imperfect wholeness and, ultimately, the courage to finally feel enough.

Lilly Bright is a writer, performer, and filmmaker living in Los Angeles since 2003. Her film career includes the production and distribution of award-winning features and documentaries under the banners of Curiously Bright Entertainment and Arthouse Films. In addition to teaching group classes in the Feldenkrais Method, Bright currently apprentices with Ohad Naharin, his movement language, Gaga, and the Batsheva Dance Company in Tel-Aviv.

When American Standard finds the right words, it transforms the mundane into something malevolent.

Bright is a born storyteller, vibrant and passionate. Despite her serious struggles, the tone is often comical. The staging is sparse, but sound effects are clever and evocative. - Highly recommended.
