Sophisticated, urbane and filled with references that will be most meaningful to those in close touch with the theater, especially with the one-man shows that frequently tour Great Britain and Canada, this drama largely centers on the views of comic actor/scenarist Alan Williams who plays "The Captain." While sitting at a lamp-lit desk covered with slides (a mocking reference to Spalding Gray's performance art), the crusty old salt offers biting and sagacious views of the modern world.
