★½ Akvavit Theatre. "A young couple sit amid their camping gear in the great outdoors, getting sloshed on boxed wine. 'Are you drunk enough to talk?' Apparently so. The night proceeds. Winding, hectoring, inebriated conversation is on the menu. It's 'The Bickersons,' minus the laughs. It's meant to be darkly funny — that's the odd thing. But you have to actually care about this couple in order for that work. What's eating at them? Who are they beyond their tiresome behavior? 'You, blabbering on, the way you blabber …,' the husband says to his wife, as his thoughts trail off in the distance on a metaphoric path I confess I wanted to follow as far away from this pair as I could possibly get." -Nina Metz
