The Kid Thing
Two lesbian couples meet for dinner. Margo and Nate, the guests, announce that they are having a baby. Leigh loves the idea. Wishes the same for her and Darcy. But Darcy has reservations that turn into verbal attacks and name-calling. lmportant issues abound (made even more so by recent events). Although playwright Sarah Gubbins bulldozes points home, the Moxie Theater production, expertly directed by Kym Pappas, overcomes most her urges to pre-digest information. And the performances -- JoAnn Glover, Katie Harroff, Sarah Karpicus, Anna Rebek, and Connor Sullivan -- are terrific. Critic's Pick.
