The roles require great virtuosity of the actresses, and we are thrilled to have Angie Radosh and Jacqueline Laggy in this production, ” said Director Keith Garsson. Theories of identity are put under the microscope in this time-bending drama as reclusive fiction writer (Angie Radosh) with a fragile mental state must depend upon a troubled young caretaker (Jaqueline Laggy) to complete her latest project. In a symbiotic battle of wills, they delve into the dark woods of the past, unearthing secrets that shatters their notions of language, loneliness and essential self.   Performances are Fri & Sat at 8pm, Sun at 2pm; Tickets $30-$35 at www.primalforces.com or call 866-811-4111.
