SF Playhouse finds an almost Orwellian dimension in Letts' potboiler. I, for one, left the theater feeling a bit like 1984's Winston Smith, a hapless insect swimming about in a Petri dish, part of some grand and foolish experiment. Like the invasive bugs that threaten to wipe out the protagonists' lives — and, they insist, humankind in its entirety — this play gets under our skin.
