When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through Nov. 5 2017

Creating a truly loathsome villain takes special craft, and the well-mannered, pious one at the center of Dawn King's 2011 one-act paranoiac drama is a real doozy. A 19-year-old inspector (chillingly played by Jack Olin) arrives at the farm of a married couple (Alexandra Fisher, David Anthony Marshall) for a government-mandated stay to look for signs of foxes, the supposed cause of suffering all across Britain. In the vein of The Crucible and the more conspiratorial works of Harold Pinter, Interrobang Theatre Project's production, directed by Margaret Knapp, gets the blood boiling and taps into grand societal-scale themes without ever zooming out of the heroes' domestic and claustrophobic story of grief and survival. —Dan Jakes
