The great David Strathairn also played Jake (after Harvey Keitel)

Sorry, Ethan, the characters in the play are all such morons that any sympathy I had for them quickly evaporated. My companion asked if we should stay for the second act and I said, "Maybe they will all get cured and go to Harvard." I loved your previous play, "Things We Want" but "Lie" is just too bizarre.
