“I think the way (director Trevor Biship) has crafted the last few minutes of the play suggests that there is hope, but that it resides in the individual,” Morris says. “The tiny decisions we make from moment to moment are what make the difference. And that is the most striking thing about this play: how arguably good men can make really bad decisions, and how those decisions ripple across time.”
