Starting with a premise that sounds almost impossible to capture convincingly onstage—this production, directed by Joe Tantalo, compounds the challenge by allowing virtually no set or props.

— The New Yorker
...director Joe Tantalo crafts an exceptionally taut and thrilling production that maximizes Maruti Evans’s sleek design. Using top-notch lighting and sound effects, and a solid ensemble, Tantalo evokes a science-fiction world not by resorting to high-tech toys, but by tickling the audience’s imagination.
