Morgan Crouch and Cory Hardin

Austin Oie

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 16 2016
Price: $20 suggested donation
Lucas Kavner’s one-act dramedy highlights the pitfalls of twentysomething relationships, particularly the inability to connect with others when you’re not exactly sure who you are or what you want. The play revolves around the one-bedroom apartment of couple Max (Cory Hardin) and Anna (Katherine Lamb), and their sexually confusing opposite-gender friendships with Avery (Morgan Crouch) and Jay (Stephen Rowland). While there are some cute, human touches before the downward spiral begins—like Max’s reference to Anna’s winter parka as her “magical abstinence jacket”—Max and Anna could use more in-sync, lovey-dovey moments to make what comes next hurt more realistically. Hardin and Lamb convey awkward tension well, though, with best friends Crouch and Rowland appropriately skeptical that this could have ever been forever. —Marissa Oberlander
