If you learn one thing from world premiere production Unsafe, let it be this: Be careful who you let inside. As a mid-winter blizzard blankets Manhattan under three feet of snow, a troubled young man with nowhere to go crashes his widowed stepmother's 40th birthday party. His arrival triggers a flurry of memories -- fond, painful and frightening -- and unwittingly exposes his family to the danger that haunts him on the abandoned, snow-covered streets below. This psychological thriller by Jim Dalglish was selected as a semifinalist at the National Playwrights Conference and now comes to Boston Center for the Arts' Plaza Theatre.
Running time is two hours and 25 minutes, with a 15-minute intermission.
