TWO TURTLE DOVES

Hawaii means you've made it, right? The semester's over, Christmas is here, and any troubles back home are half an ocean and a continent—plus five time zones—away. So sorry: not far enough. Not if you're James Littleton, a very big man in a small Carolina town. He coaches high school girls to greatness—at least, while they're on a basketball court. (Off-court, the results are a bit more varied, due to James's tough-love coaching strategies.) His wife has just left him, so he's gotten out of town for the holidays. He's brought along Meredith Erwin, a one-time student who's now his assistant coach. The two have started a relationship, maybe. Then the phone rings. The team's starting point guard just tried to commit suicide. The family is suing James for emotional and mental abuse. And Meredith is recalling all the times he used the same tactics on her. Shelby Hahn directs Alice Rose Turner and Jaybird O'Berski in Mark Cornell's new play. —Byron Woods
