Last Chance

September 11, 2003|Don Shirley

Eden Lane: Fast-lane people who leave the city for the supposed serenity of rural roads are the theme of the month at La Jolla Playhouse. Ex-actress May (Roxanne Hart) and her new husband, medical publicist Philip (Francois Giroday), have fled New York City in the wake of the collapses of May's career, her first marriage and the World Trade Center. May's 22-year-old daughter has moved with them. Much of the comedy and pathos here arise from the fervency with which these people believe they can create a personal Eden out of their house, when in fact the house appears to cause more stress than bliss.

-- Don Shirley

Ends Sunday at the La Jolla Playhouse at UC San Diego, La Jolla Village Drive and Torrey Pines Road. (858) 550-1010.
