Lesson Found: Generation INK's Strays Reviewed



Kate Bailey’s well-crafted new barroom drama, Strays, is a tricky piece of business, both for its actors and its audience. To describe it reductively, let’s call it The Big Chill meets Betrayal for the millennial generation. A tight group of college friends, united especially by the mysterious death of Victor, one of their own, reveal what happened to fray their ideals and the bonds that held them together in scenes that unfold in reverse chronological order. The work begins on a night when only two of the gang show up at their hang-out bar for the annual drinkathon in Victor’s honor and ends, four scenes later and four years earlier, on the night of his death.
