In DARK RAPTURE, Overmyer's verbal dexterity is acute as ever, but this time it's harnessed to a plot delivered by characters  who seem driven by purposes of their own. It's by far Overmyer's most satisfying play. Like many noir fictions, DARK RAPTURE is about escape: from the self, from the sane, from the ordinary.  This time the escape hatch is offered by a fire that leaves the Berkeley Hills home of Ray and Julia Gaines a pile of smoldering rubble with a charred and unrecognizable corpse beneath it. Whose corpse is it: Ray's, or a looter's?  Just where was Julia when the house burned down?

And what happened to the brown-paper parcel Julia says she left in Ray's custody? Did it go up in flames, too, with or without him?

Any number of sinister people want to know. In classic noir manner, the story advances tableau by moody tableau from Baja bedroom to Key West bar deck to Tampa kitchenette,  each offering its sharply etched character cameo, its fragment of information,  its new complication, straight to a conclusion redolent with irony...
