Run time: one hour
"Tom & Eliza" is a play in one long breath - two characters use rapid-fire language to chronicle their entire relationship, mercilessly withholding nothing. A teethy battle of wills that centers on obsessions with bathing and book-burning, the play wakens both ecstasy and disgust with life propelling the audience from an ordinary first date toward the end of civilization. The production features Daniel Kublick and Eliza Bent (pictured above).
