At a crash site somewhere in the Midwest, investigators Miranda and Erik stand amongst the wreckage. Middle-aged colleagues relatively new to each other, they tentatively begin a relationship. Although Miranda initially rebuffs Erik, it isn't long before the two have tumbled into bed together. The resulting vulnerability they both reveal and a subsequent encounter with a survivor of the crash shed light on the fragility of life and love.
"Mr. Reddin shows admirable subtlety…leaves you contemplating happiness, loss, and how arbitrarily one can smother the other." —NY Times. "…an absorbing new play…touching in its understated conversation and quiet, yet poignant conclusion." —Star-Ledger. "[Reddin's] characters are authentic human beings, the plot absorbing, his dialogue lifelike and literate." —Bloomberg.com. "Reddin displays a strong empathy for his flawed yet endearing characters especially Miranda, whose transformation from hard-edged cynicism to wounded sorrow is deeply touching…HUMAN ERROR has far more heart than most plays." —NY Post. "The characters, caught up in their separate grief, haltingly comfort one another. Reddin, with a minimum of words, but these spare words are extremely well chosen, shows us the grass is still green and sky is still blue on the other side of this scorched and desiccated spot." —Variety.
