Adam Rapp's "The Edge of Our Bodies" is the final play of the season for the Mosaic Theatre in Plantation. The play was a tremendous hit at this year's Humana Festival andpresents the story of Bernadette, sixteen, on the train from her New England private school to New York City to give her boyfriend some big news. Achingly articulate about all she can't know or control, this play captures a young woman at the threshold of vulnerability and experience.
Bernadette is played by Lexi Langs, herself not much older than the character, which makes th shocking moments all the more shocking. The play is clearly as challenging for the young performer as it is for the audience, but it is a rie we all convincingly take together. And as with most of the Mosaic productions, it shouldn't be missed.
We had a chance to sit with Lexi and talk about her role and the why this one woman show was a part she knew she wanted to play.
