    What gives meaning to life? Who deserves forgiveness? Is it ever OK to compromise our values? Which is more important—justice or mercy? How can we move beyond racial stereotypes? Whose life is worth living and who gets to decide that?

Now he can’t tell what’s real and what’s not. The New Margo: A young woman’s best friend disappears and is replaced by an entirely different person, but she’s the only one who seems to be able to tell. One Lane Bridge: A teenage driver realizes that his mysterious passenger isn’t who he thought she was—she’s something much, much worse. Each act gives the audience the horrifying feeling that all is not right with the world and that it’s going to be hard to sleep tonight.
