What is “Signs Of Life”?

Signs Of Life

Restless Artists Theatre Company’s production of “Signs of Life” is a thoughtful two-person play that explores a woman’s (Sal) desire to have children and her husband’s (Abe) efforts to help her fulfill that need. Set in the 1970s, these two leave their home in New Jersey and pack up their Vega to find a healthier place to live.

The signs and stars along the way rule the path these two take as they make their way to Los Angeles. This trip makes for a fascinating journey with many epiphanies along the way. As we watched the story unfold, we wondered if they would find the promised land that eluded them in their former home.

Some of the signs Abe and Sal follow are a tattoo, voices in the wind, and even road signs that speak to a higher meaning. I found myself looking for the signs along with Abe and Sal as this journey of enlightenment progressed.

Who Are The Players?

Karly Chandler plays Sal, a woman feeling the need to expand her family with a baby but finds that easier said than done. Her husband Abe, played by Abraham Vasquez, is supportive, so much so that he proposes a radical solution. The natural energy between these two actors helps the play flow effortlessly as the characters find themselves in some interesting situations.

The two actors are so charismatic that I found myself thinking of them as family. And as family, I worried about how they would get themselves out of the situation they got themselves in.

Check out the photos, and you will see what I am talking about.
