After the sudden death of her husband, Lucy faces the grieving process with ambivalence and disbelief. Friends gather and bumble their way through the visitation, each supplying the requisite allotment of dewy epiphany. This ensemble-devised piece is studiously au courant, allowing indirection and whimsy to take the place of plot. Still, you've got to root for Genesis Ensemble as their second full-length production shows them coming into their own by fits and starts. Director Amanda Jane Dunne gets many things right, from the sincere acting to the spot-on sound design. But without a unified vision, these efforts amount to a dexterous shuffling of empty plates. --Keith Griffith
