The Other Place, with Laurie Metcalf, at MCC Theater
Here's how MCC bills the premiere: "Just as Juliana Smithton's (Metcalf) research leads to a potentialbreakthrough in neurological medicine, her life takes a disorienting turn. During a lecture to colleagues at an exclusive beach resort, she glimpses anenigmatic young woman in a yellow bikini amidst the crowd of business suits. One step at a time, a mystery unravels as contradictory evidence, blurredtruth and fragmented memories collide in a cottage on the windswept shores of Cape Cod."
