A dart game in a small-town Idaho bar offers the backdrop for examining how small choices can have big consequences. Russell Harmon tries to win the championship, but is that all he craves? Brice Habersham stalks Russell's every move, but to what end? Nick Landrum captures both the simplicity and the depth of rural life, where not everything or everyone is as they appear. His dry tone conveys both humor and fear, often together. Landrum wastes little effort on accents or gender differentiation, giving the weight of his performance to timing and irony. As he reveals the backstory behind each player, we appreciate the layers of their lives, and Morris's nuanced work. R.L.L. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2009]
