If it weren’t for the dutiful, implausible conclusion, this persuasively acted, meticulously designed, and expertly directed play would be a spectacular debut for Route 66 Theatre Company. Instead it’s merely terrific. John Kolvenbach’s two-hander, about estranged brothers holed up in their crumbling boyhood home after one finds himself facing serious jail time, bears strong resemblance to Sam Shepard’s True West, but Kolvenbach replaces Shepard’s pulp mysticism with Mametian syncopation and muscularity. The result is by turns hilarious and harrowing. (JHa)
