Strangely energized by the kidnapping of a 16-year-old girl, her parents, best friend, and boyfriend appear more interested in the fact of her disappearance than in what may have happened to her. Worse, they develop an appetite for tragedy that feeds on itself, replacing regret and even halting a police investigation. Though heavy-handed in its depiction of the ties that unbind, Vincent Truman’s one-act earns its cynicism. Melissa Malan’s staging for Viable Theater Company is as crisp and streamlined as the writing. (LB)
