British playwright Debbie Tucker Green's one-act drama gains volumes in its translation to an American stage. A pair of white bureaucrats (Annabel Armour, Eleni Pappageorge) meet with an unnamed woman of color (Patrese D. McClain) in a corporate-style conference room. Both Keira Fromm's Remy Bumppo production and Green's play only hint at the nature of the conversation and the interviewee's status—victim, witness, or cooperating coconspirator—prompting audiences to interrogate every hollow nicety, leading question, and sympathetic glance. The result is a seat-gripping, often purposefully frustrating experience that speaks profoundly both to ripped-from-the-headlines real experiences as well as to the abstract relationship citizens have with their government. The fact that someone else's dystopian fantasy happens to mirror real life in the United States is downright chilling. —Dan Jakes
