2003-04 Season 2


by Melissa James Gibson
Directed by Kathleen Akerley

March 2004

In adjacent apartments, three neighbors push the limits of friendship as they use language both as an instrument of intimacy and a weapon of defense. Exploring these lonely lives through language that alternates between exhilarating structural inventiveness, loony comedy, and poignant self-analysis, Melissa James Gibson has created a play that is as witty and wise as it is stylistically groundbreaking and unexpected.

What They Say

“Director Kimberly Ackerly and designer Thomas F. Donahue create a setting in which the audience is situated between the three apartment rooms, making it almost impossible to watch the entire play without turning in one direction or another. It’s a compelling device, giving the production an interactive feel, as well as implicating the audience as much as the characters in Gibson’s modern dilemma.”
