"Third Rail Rep returns to the work of the riveting Irish playwright Enda Walsh with this story set in a bland prison in some blandly menacing dystopia, exploring relationships in unlikely places. Walsh is justly lauded for his sometimes feverishly wordy yet poetic writing; this time he puts physicality on an equal plane, with movement-focused sections meant to represent, as he told The New York Times “the pressure put on a body in confinement.”" - Oregon Arts Watch
“I like your voice, by the way.”
A young woman waits alone in a room for her number to be called. On the other side of the wall, a young man watches her and weighs a choice that could change her destiny and his. The line between dreams and reality blur in this “riveting fever dream of a play” (The New York Times). In a dangerous, dystopian world, what if love is the most powerful act of resistance?
