"This play, directed by Linda Hornsby, by its very nature achieves the aim of the Civic's miniseries -- to present plays in the little Tupperware annex that are too controversial or experimental to succeed on the theater's main stage. But it then reaches farther, succeeding on its own terms, succeeding in every way.
