In February, Spenser Davis directed a stellar production of Michael Perlman's heart-filled At the Table, a tightly knit living room dramedy following the mid-midlife crises of friends outgrowing their youthful bonds with one another. This gnarly, in-yer-face 2010 dark comedy by Leslye Headland shares some surprising thematic and stylistic crossover with Davis's previous show, and like it, benefits from his close attention to casual back-and-forths—even if the outcome this time around is straight-up misanthropic. Ensconced in her friend's bridal suite, a late twentysomething (Carmen Molina) invites old friends for a night of debauchery and learns the hard way the difference between what's long past cute and what's irrevocably horrid. This Level 11 production is a ferocious ensemble effort all-around. —Dan Jakes
