When: Thursdays-Saturdays. Continues through Feb. 17 2018
Price: $22, $18 military
Kathleen Cahill’s searing 2017 triptych shows us, in three interconnected one acts, five lives ripped apart, two literally and three figuratively, by a roadside IED explosion near Mosul, Iraq, in 2004. In each play, Cahill displays considerable skill, telling compelling stories filled with rich, believable, sympathetic multi-dimensional characters. She has a strong ally in director Ann Filmer, who fills the production with strong actors, all of whom gracefully reveal the nuances in Cahill’s work. Stephanie Shum and Felipe Carrasco are especially strong as a mismatched, but still functional team: he’s a traditional jarhead who doesn’t believe women have a place in the marines; she's a marine who does. And Arti Ishak displays remarkable range as a guilty survivor haunted by the ghost of a fallen comrade/perhaps lover. —Jack Helbig
