    In ‘Pimm’s Mission,’ Seeking Clues to a Deadly Blast

    Daniel M. Gold

    August 7, 2015: “Pimm’s Mission” takes place on a Sunday afternoon in an empty bar across the street from the Manhattan headquarters of a Big Pharma company, Zincorp, where an explosion has just killed 15 people. F.B.I. agents are questioning Robert Pimm, a Brit who was outside the building when the blast went off, and is nursing a head injury. Learning very little — Pimm says the blast has left him addled — the agents are about to leave. That’s when the bartender pipes up: Pimm’s a regular, there every Sunday — and didn’t his drinking buddy work at Zincorp? From there, Christopher Stetson Boal’s drama, staged by the Oberon Theater Ensemble at the 59E59 Theaters, toggles between an invigorated interrogation of Pimm (Mac Brydon) and flashbacks of the friendship he had developed with Thomas Blander (Ryan Tramont), stretching back more than a year.
