Unit Set/Multiple Settings

In Washington D.C., a widow named O is trying to figure out whether life is worth re-engaging with. In her path are the 1968 riots, the first Gulf War, the Freedom of Information Act and herself. There's also an archivist named Keith, a cop named Perry and a kid named Cleo. And finally, there's the question of just how much about anything do we really need to know.
"A stirring new work…Belber's intelligent script is seamless; a bitterly funny parable in which the allure of knowledge—and of love—has inexorable consequences." —The New Yorker. "Strong talk and sinewy structure…the ninety-minute narrative's strands twist into a noose from which there's no escape for the characters." —Star-Ledger. "Belber's play is cleanly constructed, his characters well-defined, his humor-spiked dialogue refreshingly natural." —NY Times. "A terrific new play." —TheaterMania.com.
