Although Mr & Mrs Woolsey make brief sporadic appearances, this is essentially a monologue by Myra, a young lady who focuses first her laser intelligence, then her empathy, on her job and employer. It takes place in 1919, but the topics of workaholism and workplace emotional affairs are timeless. The play seems slow-paced at first, but pulls you in, and the 90 minutes fly by (except for the seats being uncomfortable, which costs my rating the 5th star). Susan Lynskey brings an understated intensity to the role of Myra, and her portrayal, while convincingly tragic, is also delightfully suggestive, wry, and sardonic.

Not as good as the publicity would lead one to believe - there's little mystery here. It's entertaining enough, but not up to Metro Stage's usual caliber. We were disappointed.

Novelist Franklin Woolsey dies mid-sentence, but his typist continues to take dictation, causing great consternation from his wife, his publisher and the general public. Where are these words coming from?
A drama about the writing process, creativity and love — with a little punctuation thrown in for good measure.
Featuring Susan Lynskey, Helen Hedman and Paul Morella.
