Inanimate objects, and the power with which we infuse them, dominate this new play from Scott T. Barsotti in such a way that even a coffee pot comes to life. Hissing and spitting, it provides a physical manifestation for the fog clouding the lives of the play's central couple, who are mired in anguish over a lost son. The talented Diana Slickman and Robert Koon guide us through these characters' grief without ever leaving the family living room, an insidious place where couches turn into ghouls and chairs seem to weep. Director Devon De Mayo and sound designer Stephen Gawrit construct terror all too capably—the final "phantom" should leave you deeply unsettled, to say the least. —Chloe Riley
