“Snakes and Ladders”

Brittany Cox and Fox Matthews, divorced but unable to sell their house.

Daniel Tarker’s new play looks at contemporary angst over foreclosures and broken marriages, and also offers ┬áinsightful commentary on contemporary values. Some of the characters suffer, but you won’t. It’s funny and sexy.

The first act is a bit slow, but hang in there. The second act more than makes up for it.

Through July 9 produced by Pacific Play Company with Seattle Playwrights Collective at Downstage Theatre, 4029 Stone Way N., Seattle; (www.pacificplaycompany.com or www.brownpapertickets.com).
