Former dead-end addict Elizabeth believes she's done one thing right in her life: she identified her rapist, sending him to prison 19 years ago. Now that new DNA evidence may prove her wrong, Elizabeth, her caretaker sister, and her troubled teenage daughter descend into triple meltdown. If coauthors Andrew Gallant and Tim Touhy had stuck to this story, they might have had a whizbang of a play, especially given the impassioned, detailed performances of their female leads. Unfortunately they devote an equal amount of stage time to the Center on Innocence (clearly based on Northwestern's Center on Wrongful Convictions), where the team trying to free Elizabeth's accused rapist mostly engage in tin-eared exposition. Codirectors Gallant and Touhy keep a steady pace but too often strand clumps of actor in wayward corners. –Justin Hayford
