A reclusive fiction writer diagnosed with dementia must depend upon a troubled young caretaker to complete her autobiography. In a symbiotic battle of wills, they delve into the dark woods of the past, unearthing a tragedy that shatters their notions of language, loneliness and essential self.
"Though most plays depend on words, words are immutably the crux of Jennifer Haley’s West Coast premiere play. The telling of stories and memories, lies and truths, relies on our words. And like the breadcrumbs dropped in a fairy tale to find a way back to the familiar, words are dropped along the life path of the protagonist-author in this two-hander. Those breadcrumbs, however, are being pecked at and removed from her memory by Alzheimer’s disease." - Backstage 

"
For playwright Jennifer Haley, the concept of identity, much like the theater, is a construct of both deeply personal and communal elements. Haley puts her theories of identity under the microscope in her new play Breadcrumbs..." - LA Stage Times  

"
There are few pleasures in a theatre-lover’s life more entrancing than the discovery of a new play that, or a new playwright who, engages mind and heart with equal aplomb. In the exquisite regional premiere of Jennifer Haley’s Breadcrumbs at Manbites Dog Theater, Triangle audiences have a perfect opportunity to encounter both." - Classical Voices of North Carolina
Breadcrumbs premiered in July of 2010 at the Contemporary American Theater Festival in West Virginia, under the direction of Laura Kepley.
