William Faulkner’s line "The past is never dead. It's not even past” could be the tagline for Barbara Lhota’s wise, witty play about three childhood friends, now in early middle age, suddenly confronted by ghosts of the past, specifically the traumas associated with decaying race relations in Detroit in the 70s. Lhota, a subtle but effective storyteller, pulls the audience in before we can resist, then keeps us absorbed in her narrative. Her characters are free of cliche—no wonder the actors in this world-premiere Organic Theater production, directed by Laura Sturm, seem to be having a blast. Their passion and energy provide the extra fuel that makes this quiet, intensely introspective tale so compelling. —Jack Helbig
