Language -- as weapon, shield and flawed intermediary with an uncontrollable world -- is the main character in this razor-sharp cycle of duets about people in transit by Neil LaBute. As directed by John Kastner for StageWorthy Productions, these seven vignettes, each featuring a different couple in a car, are skillfully planted with verbal booby traps that spring in ways by turns sinister, poignant and funny. Kastner, for the most part, gets wonderfully nuanced performances from his large ensemble cast. Indeed, the performances here tend to be so effective that the crudely naïve set becomes superfluous. This is high caliber community theater -- stimulating, satisfying and worth checking out. Given this production of Autobahn
, StageWorthy's arrival in Broad Ripple -- bringing live theater to the Village at Trinity Church's Central Space -- is good news. Through May 2; 317-253-9115.
