MINI REVIEW

A married couple (Virgilia Griffith, Jordan Pettle), face challenges when the husbands friend (Ryan Hollyman) initiates an affair with the wife. Intriguingly, Pinter explores the trios evolving interrelationship by presenting the scenes moving backwards in time. Under Andrea Donaldsons direction, the production gains momentum as it progresses. Its fascinating to watch the intensity of the affair grow. Although Pinters text includes both funny and serious moments, this production leans more toward the dramatic. Those famous Pinter pauses could be more thoroughly explored and exploited, but this peek into relationships and infidelity remains timelessly compelling.
