    Theater: Atlantic Stage Two / 330 West 16th St., New York, New York, 10011

    Synopsis: 

    Rachel has it all: marriage, house, career. So why does she suddenly have this creeping feeling? Did she leave something behind? Or is there something in the walls…? Her husband thinks she needs time; her psychiatrist suggests positive thinking. But then the visions start. A darkly comic play about the underside of domesticity, the complexity of the brain in chaos, and the thin line between sinking and survival.

    Clare Lizzimore makes her Atlantic playwriting debut with this disquieting play directed by frequent Atlantic collaborator Gaye Taylor Upchurch.

    Consider her performance as the fate-flattened heroine of Sophie Treadwell’s "Machinal" on Broadway in 2014, or her even more harrowing portrait of the suicidal newscaster in the recent film "Christine." In both cases — and in two mediums — Ms. Hall showed an uncanny gift for finding tonal variety in flatline feeling that made you watch raptly even when it hurt to do so.
