The knives come out before hors d'oeuvres are even served at the dinner party in Cor Theatre's midwest premiere of Jordan Tannehill's lacerating meditation on loss and forgiveness. A year after their gay teen son's suicide, his parents invite the family of a classmate who tormented him over in an attempt to heal and move on with their lives. But no one in the dining room trusts anyone else's motives, and it becomes clear that the grown-ups barely knew the boy, while his classmate will never reveal the extent of their relationship. Despite one crucial plot point which strains belief, this is a tense and at times devastating study of the limits of parents' understanding of their children. Jessica Fisch directed. —Dmitry Samarov
