SYNOPSIS: Of all life’s timeless questions, nothing seems more immediate than contradictions within the human heart. Stretching between despair and loneliness on one side and light and hope on the other are the shadowy regions that we must inhabit. The texture of these are what interest George R Carr in his tragicomic play, S&M&B...sometimes between you and me is it. And this fragmented question anchors the allegorical script. Can we connect fully with another person or even our own longings? When the prospect seems too daunting, Carr’s characters focus on the veneer of routine but find themselves examining their own choices, fears, and pleasures with unremitting candor. The comic and absurdist banter punctuates the angst allowing the audience to experience what it feels and looks like to move from contentment to crisis and, yes, to resolution. Consciously or unconsciously, Carr redefines the moral and sexual bases of our own time in a new language that goes out (beyond oneself) to go in. What we witness in the scenes of S&M&B are a kind of waking dream that should lead us inward towards our own journey.
