PLAYMAKERS REPERTORY COMPANY, CHAPEL HILL WEDNESDAY, APRIL 1–SUNDAY, APRIL 19

Home may well be the place where, as Robert Frost said, they have to take you in. Still, Leo is pushing it: showing up at his 91-year-old grandmother Vera's Greenwich Village apartment at 3 a.m., filthy and reeking after a cross-country bike trip has ended in disaster. Here, at continent's end, Leo has run out of road and options. As Vera soon learns, he's crashing on her couch in more than one sense of the term. In Amy Herzog's "refreshingly caustic but deeply compassionate" (Chicago Tribune) 2012 Obie winner, two obstinate—and somewhat lost—souls try to resolve the progressive politics and personalities that set them apart from each other, lovers, family members and the world. The work suggests that believing in community is one thing, but realizing it is quite another. Guest director Desdemona Chiang leads a cast including Dee Maaske and Schuyler Scott Mastain. 7:30 p.m. Tues.–Sat.; 2 p.m. Sun. and April 11, $15–$42, 150 Country Club Rd., Chapel Hill, 919-962-7529, www.playmakersrep.org.
