Inside Out Theatres second-to-last play, Manuscript, was about a conniving woman devoted to mans ruin, and the men who avenged themselves against her. Then came The Faith Healer, about a woman ruined by a man too self-absorbed to notice. Both productions were jewels, tucked improbably away in the little theater in the Huizenga Arts Park at The Fort Lauderdale Museum of Art (1 East Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale). Nobody new to the place or to the company would imagine that this little operation, with a folding table manned by the companys stage manager serving as a will-call window, had the chops to blow minds and break hearts. But they did, and damned near swept this papers Best Of 2007 awards in the process. Now comes Irish novelists Edna OBriens Triptych to continue Inside Outs study of the terrible things men and women do to each other. The play follows three women the wife, mistress, and daughter of a famous, and probably deeply evil, playwright as suspicion and loneliness bring their lives into alignment then fucks them all up.
