Except for Woodbridge, who seems to equate preadolescence with loutishness, everyone plays this so beautifully, under David Esbjornson's direction, that its cliché-ridden absurdity makes you weep rather than cringe with embarrassment. Emery, who has given so many superb performances in rotten plays (or in rotten productions of great plays) that it seems to be her specialty, chalks up another one, sumptuous in its fury, vulnerability, and shuddery self-hatred. Grenier, stuck with an even more factitious role, handles it with grace and teasing verve.
