Paula Vogel's 1994 play starts out as a comedy about the writing process, a subject popular with writers and nobody else. Screenwriter Charlene has to turn in 40 pages in the morning, but her teenage son and daughter keep distracting her. Her domestic situation contrasts sharply with the type of movies she writes—feminist erotica full of noirish dialogue and powerful women. It's only with the arrival of Charlene's abusive ex-husband (brutish yet somehow sympathetic Matthew David Gellin) that a secondary theme—the home as a minefield of sex and violence—comes powerfully to the fore. Jeffry Stanton's staging for Interrobang Theatre Project is tense, volatile, and raw from start to finish, helping to mask the script's uneven tone and position-paper take on sexual power dynamics. —Zac Thompson
