FLIGHT LINES. Anthony, a retired man in his sixties, and his wife, Christie, live in relative serenity until he is selected to sit on the jury for a sensational courtroom case. A terrorist, an attractive woman in her thirties, is being tried for complicity in a bank hold-up and the resulting murder of a guard. The play, which takes place in the aging couple's living room and in the mind of Anthony, examines such complex issues as justice versus individual compassion, and the nature of radicalism, in a surprisingly simple, affecting story. (1 man, 2 women.) CROSSINGS. The play begins in postwar Germany with a father telling his young daughter the old and familiar story of his escape from a prisoner-of-war camp. In ensuing scenes, the daughter grows up and begins to question her father's passive behavior during the war. Though he tries to defend his actions as a rational response to the time and place he lived, his daughter remains skeptical. It is only when the daughter realizes her own vulnerability to the easy habit of indifference, in present-day America, that she truly begins to understand her father. (1 man, 2 women.)
