Synopsis

This masterfully-plotted play has so many twists and turns that we're going to tell you only the bare minimum of the story so you can enjoy the surprises. On the surface, it's a tale about organized crime and threats of violence. State's witness Evan Jorris, a tax consultant, is under a government protection program after testifying against the mob. His wife, Francine, is with him in hiding. Other characters include Larry Craig, their lawyer, and Bert Marshak, a federal agent. Thalia Broderick is a medical doctor and Angie Hoffmeier is a maid at the motel where they are hiding. This deceptively simple setup, however, is not what it seems. By the end of the first act, the audience may smugly think that they can second-guess the play's outcome, but in the second (and final) act, they will ruefully discover that they not only don't know what's what -- they don't even know who's who!
