Scott Ellis's production, pushing everyone firmly along single-trait lines, doesn't help. Smith-Cameron, like Christopher Abbott as the school's resident gay victim, effectively pumps out a steady flow of neurasthenia; Smith conveys the hero's obstinacy with conviction; only Kellie Overbey, as his aunt, appears interested in finding the multiple facets of her role. One can't blame them for seeming to bang on doors that the playwright keeps stubbornly locked tight.
