Would you give up everything for love? If you ask Whitney and Max, the anxious couple of playwright Johnna Adams’s World Builders, the answer is neither simple nor straightforward. Both suffer from a disease called schizoid personality disorder, a condition that makes their imaginary worlds as real as the world revealed by the drug they're forced to swallow. After a chance encounter during a clinical trial, the couple establish a budding relationship that's put to the test when they’re forced to choose between the meds and their mental worlds. Directed by Jesse Roth, this First Floor Theater production features snappy dialogue and fearless performances by Carmen Molina and Andrew Cutler as two people coming to terms with who they are and how they choose to live, in realms both real and imagined. —Matt de la Peña
