In Jeff Stolzer's provocative new play, a married couple places a winning bid on an abandoned storage locker in the hopes of finding valuables inside. What they discover instead turns out to be a lot more than they bargained for.
See it if The clash between what we have and what we covet is interesting, just doesn't offer fleshed-out plot or characters. Could be saved.
Don't see it if The clash between men and women as shown is weakly presented as name-calling. The who-has-power angle could be better examined.
