The high energy of the cast propels Collapse through its swift 80 intermission-less minutes. Federico, the closest Dallas theater has to a Paul Giamatti, roils with repressed pain. He also hangs off the side of that bridge for about 20 minutes. Impressive. Spillman, always good at playing pinched hysterics, works up a convincing case of the crazies. Newcomer Wade has a wildness about her that offsets the others' knottiness.

Like so many of the new plays Kitchen Dog presents, this one is not great dramatic literature, not wildly original or witty, but satisfying all the same. Director Christopher Carlos and his actors deserve a lot of credit for keeping the tone of Collapse light enough to allow us to laugh without guilt at its four troubled souls.
