You peek into a thoroughly confined back yard where two pre-teens play at pretending to be adults, something like their separate parents who, upstairs, do the nasty. No peeping. But spying on the weird widower next door feels like fun. The kids seek to make sense of the grown-up world but, down in the dirt, things look real smudgy. Along with some laughs there’s “hard-won truth waiting at the end” said a Village Voice review. Sara Farrington wrote this one-hour visit.  She’s from New York but has spent multiple hours and days over the years at the Great Plains Theater Conference which is where this play first aired out its linen. Language advisory.
