Lots of talk, quick moves don't hide social theme

Theater Review

The Increased Difficulty of Concentration. No, that's not the title of a research paper on attention deficit disorder.

The disorder that disrupts concentration in Vaclav Havel's 1968 play is social and political. Weighty as this may sound, Havel uses the structure of farce to tell his tale of a beleaguered social scientist participating in a decidedly odd study on individuality.

If you go The Increased Difficulty of Concentration runs 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday at the Theatre Project, 45 W. Preston St. Tickets are $20. Call 410-752-8558 or go to theatreproject.org.
