Son's way of turning the climactic crackup into a peaceful resolution seems both arbitrary and rushed, but until then her writing is rarely false and often flavorsome, its feeling of truthfulness abetted by Michael Greif's breakneck-paced but always strongly focused production. None of Son's dense-packed details, by the way, explain her title. The jittery unease crammed into both these plays presumably leaves authors little time to reflect on such matters calmly.
