Though playwright Gina Gionfriddo wrote it in 2008 and productions had been mounted on the East Coast, Becky Shaw was new to Southern Californian eyes and ears when South Coast Repertory staged it in October and November 2010. It was a deceptively deep play titled after the most elusive and, arguably, unimportant character. A great cast, led by a splendidly detailed and belly-laugh-inducing Brian Avers as Max, perfectly captured the ambiguity of Gionfriddo's masterfully executed script. As we wrote in the original review, "her ability to call into question the ambiguous, taxing nature of human relationships in a play that could've been just another in a long line of overly talky pieces featuring impossibly articulate, hyper-intelligent characters signals a dramatist of major proportion."
