Days of Late The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through May 22 2010

A young wife spends her days secluded in her luxury home, taking pregnancy tests, desperate to prove her worth to her high-powered-attorney husband--who spends his days debasing his secretary and fucking strangers he finds on Craigslist. When her suspicions of his infidelity are confirmed, their explosive confrontation shatters both characters into a thousand shards. Their gripping story is one of several relationship sagas in Braden Lubell's Days of Late, but the only one with high dramatic stakes. In the others, Lubell, who also directs, rarely moves beyond the question of whether slightly quirky people will end up romantically or sexually satisfied. This makes for a meandering two-and-a-half hours, but Sinnerman Ensemble's top-notch cast deliver compelling performances throughout. --Justin Hayford
