"This is a situation in which there is no privacy."
That situation - investigated with many false starts and bogus clues - is the subject of Lucile Lichtblau's new play The English Bride, directed by Deborah Block for Theatre Exile.
That situation is the interrogation of an Arab (J. Paul Nicholas) by an Israeli Mossad officer (Damon Bonetti). And the questioning of an English woman (Corinna Burns) who is/was the Arab's lover. And a flight canceled. And a terminal evacuated. What is going on? Who did what? Why?
The English Bride requires a tolerance for ambiguity - not just patience as we wait to find out what's what, but also a willingness to face the fact that the truth is only partly knowable and only some of the time. Dov, the Israeli agent, knows this all too well - a lesson that the play will teach us.
