The Lover

Imago Theatre (map) Southeast
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Dec. 21 2013

$10-20

Imago dusts off one of Harold Pinter's lesser-known plays, a one-act about a husband and wife who are locked in precarious balance between fantasy, reality, and role-playing. The script is great, but it leaves much to the interpretation of the director; Imago's production avoids a sexy, crowd-pleasing take in favor of darker emotional territory. But it's not really clear why, and this ambiguity of intention—coupled with an oddly dated, underwhelming production design—makes for an unsatisfying experience. ALISON HALLETT
