There have been several takes on the real-life spy saga of FBI agent Robert Hanssen. In 2001 he was exposed as a double agent (codenamed "grayday") who had sold secrets to the KGB since 1979, in what the U.S. Department of Justice termed "possibly the worst intelligence disaster in U.S. history." A series of books, including the David Wise best-seller, Spy, followed those revelations, along with two films in 2007: a documentary, Superspy, and Breach. But for writer Richard Krawiec, who founded Jacar Press, something important has been minimized in most of these iterations: the role Hanssen's wife, Bonnie, played in what was more than 20 years of high-level intrigue in her immediate family.

In the world premiere of Creeds, the first production from a Durham-based artistic incubator project called The Playground, Krawiec asks, "What did she know and when did she know it?"

Paul Paliyenko directs a notable cast including Jeffrey Alguire, Lori Mahl and Jessica Heironimus, Thursdays through Sundays through April 1. —Byron Woods
