Two estranged sisters wade through a city dump in search of their dead mother's final letter, thrown away in a passive-aggressive fit. Tensions flare as they air their grievances atop a garbage pile, and the sisters go from hammering out their issues to hammering each other. Which is the point: Arthur Jolly's sluggish, circular script is basically an excuse for some badass found-object fight choreography. But where's the rest? Without enough dramatic build to heighten the stakes, Babes With Blades's few exciting action sequences seem lost in a play that barely skims its own surface. —Dan Jakes
