Good acting saves a paper-thin script in this MPAACT world premiere. Paul Notice's 80-minute one-act concerns an ambitious 22-year-old African-American congressional aide who betrays his integrity—and his sometime girlfriend—in pursuit of a plum political job. Skimming the surface of such hot-button issues as Obamacare, freedom of religion, and marriage equality, Notice's brisk little fable offers no new insight into the moral choices faced by idealists in a cynical profession. Director Carla Stillwell nevertheless coaxes fresh, spontaneous performances from her six-person ensemble. —Albert Williams
