The eight performances here provide depth to the settings of these evocative short stories. Themes of race and class are covered, offering fascinating windows into lives on the fringe. Among the standout moments: Alan Carlson exquisitely conveys the violence and ethical dilemmas a professor faces when his daughter is attacked and the police do nothing. Gary Furlong captures a challenging father-and-son dynamic after they witness a tanker capsize. And Leon Nixon captivates when a professor and son are trapped in a rural town during a road trip. The listening experience may be deliberately disorienting as settings and timelines shift, but the soundscape never loses rhythm or pacing, or breaks its spell.
