The Eden Myth

Mark Edlitz's chamber melodrama about a family harboring a dark secret starts off promisingly, with an air of decadent mystery. The characters—reclusive parents cooped up in a mansion with their four visiting children—speak in Mamet-like cadences while sorting out their yearnings and half-concealed motives. But once the skeleton's out of the closet, the story bogs down in grotesque, implausible events, and the somnambulant acting is relieved only by Zohra Lampert, who, as the put-upon mother, deploys an impressive arsenal of facial tics. The spooky atmosphere is much abetted by the hypnotic Philip Glass score.
