    To say something or not about a suspicious or left behind item in public -- most of us, aware of living in a dangerous world where terrorism could happen anytime, can relate to this situation in Bavoso's play. We're always looking around, wondering about that backpack... Are we overreacting these days about our safety in public? Should we always say something to authorities, or will it just be a waste of time? And then the play becomes something else, a shocking twist that I didn't see coming. Check out this topical play.

    A tale you'll identify with- at first. Two people so run ragged by modern America's rampant negativity and obsession with safety meet on a Metro train. An unopened gallon of milk becomes the topic, but this play ends with a twist reminiscent of Zoo Story. Shocking and fun.
