THE PLAY: Eight different times in their lives, a couple comes together with physical and emotional damage.

 

THE PRODUCTION: This is another of those contemporary plays that feels like it was created more for the actors than for the audience. Luckily, this duo creates characters that make the production satisfying. The man’s personality drives the show and Jeffrey Cole makes him lovably spunky. The woman is more reactive and Rachel Rose Gilmour successfully sustains a moody personna. Their strong chemistry brings moments of emotional connection. Director Melissa Rayford has enabled them to flesh out their performances, although it might have been better to place the bed center stage, so both sides could see more of the pivotal moments. Running time: 2:10

 

THE POINT: These actors create strong personalities in this moderately interesting character study.
