His wife Hannah is suffering from her own forms of stress — coping with David’s depression, yearning to be pregnant, frustrated with her job.
When her flaky sister shows up for an uninvited visit of indeterminate length, Hannah is on the verge of unraveling completely. Allison Moore’s new play, which she calls “a comedy of anxiety,” is a humorous but thoughtful exploration of crumbling structures — from bridges and the economy to personal relationships. Collapse is the kind of script that Know Theatre has been unearthing for local audiences, and this one is being staged by the company’s former artistic director, Jason Bruffy. $18 ($15 if purchased in advance). Through March 3.
