For more than a decade, the Providence Players of Fairfax have graced the regional theater stage with well-crafted, crowd-pleasing productions. Michael Cristofer’s Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning drama The Shadow Box takes shape at the James Lee Community Center, mixing pathos and humor with a stirring peek behind the hospital curtains at a day in the life of three families dealing with terminally ill brethren. Dramatic without being maudlin, the play celebrates relationships, family, and the inevitable conclusion of all carbon-based life forms with wit, dignity, and unflinching realism. The play contains mature language and themes, so parents should leave wee ones at home and spare them a mouthful of soap.
