Wrecks, by Neil LaBute, centers around a man, Edward Carr, coming to terms with the death of his wife, and the dark secret that brought them together. The staggered revelations in Carr’s internal monologue are woven into his more general disapproving commentary on a culture too prone to public confession and emotional display. (What we, the audience, are hearing is what’s happening inside his head.) As befits a character whose story has parallels with a certain Greek myth, Carr speaks occasionally of the role of “the happenstance of life” and “the way the universe likes to play it.”
