This is a past event.
Back in May, Fairlane Theater offered an evocative bare-bones production of Neil LaBute's gorgeous 2004 play cycle, and now so does Awkward Pause Theatre. This is no complaint; I'd welcome a new Autobahn every month. Each of the seven two-person plays takes place in a car, as decisive moments play out in a variety of tenuous relationships—husband/wife, mother/daughter, pedophile/victim—that inch toward unredeemability. The performances this time around aren't as carefully etched and the predicaments not quite so dire, but director Andrew Jessop allows his fine cast ample breathing room to explore more of the script's troubling subtext. While the relative looseness makes the evening feel a touch overlong, the cumulative effect of these probing performances is enormously satisfying. —Justin Hayford
