When Jim and Bill get together to celebrate Bill's thirty-ninth birthday, they meet Joe, who's slightly older and odder, and their boys' night out quickly turns sour. Whole Foods, mini-hot dogs and Edie Brickell abound as together they attempt to delineate loyalty, conviction and betrayal.
"A cautionary comedy about the fragility of friendship." —NY Daily News. "Crackles with terrific dialogue, expertly delivered." —NY Post. "FAULT LINES, a sly and extremely satisfying new work…is not only cleverly constructed, it's also very funny. Punctuated with laughs that come out of character, rather than out of joke lines, this is a show that deserves to run and run—provided critics and audience members don't give too much away and ruin it for future playgoers." —Talkin' Broadway. "For a while, one wonders if the playwright is simply planning a threesome variation on Edward Albee's The Zoo Story; but happily for the audience, he's concocted something far more intricate—a play that will have spectators literally gasping as surprise succeeds surprise." —TheaterMania.com. "Brittle, blunt and also wonderfully cryptic…Belber's riveting play defies expectations at every turn." —CurtainUp.
