When nothing happens in some plays, you can still be riveted by their wit or character development. But when nothing happens in Gloria Bond Clunie's new play, it's just plain boring. The title refers to the slow erosion of a long-term marriage, as Cora decides to leave Charlie, a good man, because. . . well, he didn't fix a leaky faucet. She just disappears without explanation--to him or us. The first part of a trilogy, Drip ends with zero payoff. After waiting two hours to see Charlie's reaction, we don't. It's the opposite of a cliffhanger since it kills all curiosity. The best part of Cheryl Lynn Bruce's story-theater staging is the townsfolk's commentary, but even that is repetitive and undiscerning. --Laura Molzahn
