Irish playwright Conor McPherson has gotten a lot of mileage in Portland recently, and This Lime Tree Bower, co-produced here by CoHo Productions and Our Shoes Are Red/the Performance Lab, is the third of his plays to open in Portland in as many years. Lime Tree's three protagonists take turns describing a pivotal few days in their lives. The disparate threads eventually coincide, but in a manner that sufficiently thwarts audience expectations of how a story should end. The deftness of the performances—coupled with McPherson's bawdy yet heartfelt script—make for a uniquely powerful show. ALISON HALLETT
