When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through Feb. 9 2014

With their home on the brink of foreclosure, an out-of-work businessman and his youthful-looking wife hatch a scheme to lure and blackmail pedophiles in online chats. In lesser hands, the premise of Dusty Wilson's bold new drama might make for an off-color caper story. Instead, we get a sweet, unsettling meditation on the dangers of love and the evanescence of justice. Clint Worthington directs the perfectly cast premiere for the Phebe Project, using scenic designer T. Paul Lowry's restrained video work to move seamlessly between real life and Internet fiction—a distinction that blurs quickly. As the conflicted but complicit wife, Claire Elizabeth Saxe delivers a revelatory, multilayered performance. –Keith Griffith
