Three Days of Rain Recommended Member Picks The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through June 25 2011

Like the building at the center of its plot, Richard Greenberg's 1997 drama is a balancing act between solids and voids--between what a brother and sister believe about their family history and what they'll never know. In act one we meet Walker and Nan as they try to come to grips with the fact that their famous, newly deceased architect father has bequeathed his greatest achievement, an iconic modernist house, to his partner's son. In act two, the siblings' narratives about their parents go completely topsy-turvy. Matthew Reeder's sinewy production for BackStage Theatre finds the wounded heart under Greenberg's rat-a-tat, astringent wit, and John Henry Roberts is simply marvelous as both voluble Walker and his stuttering dad. --Kerry Reid
