Stranded onstage with nothing better to do, desperate lovers Tom and Elizabeth dry hump, eat apples suggestively, beat each other up, reminisce about sex, fool with a knife, get weepy, beat each other up again, breathe heavily, invoke the occasional big metaphor (the War, the Land), and beat each other up a few more times. And maybe Elizabeth is dying of something. Gary Henderson's 1998 one-act hasn't been presented in Chicago before, but his labored attempt to create psychosexual edginess feels drearily familiar. Director Victoria Deiorio puts actors Tosha Fowler and Tony Buzzuto through intermittently exhilarating paces in this 50-minute inaugural production from Cor Theatre, and the fight choreography by Scott Cummins and Julia Neary is harrowing. —Justin Hayford
