    Synopsis: 

    Hot off a string of hits in Seattle, Chicago, and L.A., fast-rising playwright Sharr White (Sunlight, Six Years) makes his New York debut with MCC Theater's production of this volatile and emotional thriller.

    Just as Juliana Smithton's (Laurie Metcalf) research leads to a potential breakthrough in neurological medicine, her life takes a disorienting turn. During a lecture to colleagues at an exclusive beach resort, she glimpses an enigmatic young woman in a yellow bikini amidst the crowd of business suits. One step at a time, a mystery unravels as contradictory evidence, blurred truth and fragmented memories collide in a cottage on the windswept shores of Cape Cod.

The play, which opened on Monday night at the Lucille Lortel Theater in an MCC Theater production, is dominated by a compelling, at times scarily intense performance from Laurie Metcalf.
