Poetry emotion

The best new plays are always hard to categorize, and Jenny Schwartz’s God’s Ear is no exception. Staged by UVA’s drama department, it is a powerful and intentionally disjointed examination of deep loss and finding ways to cope. Beneath the plot is a mosaic of language, bursting with fractured thoughts that tether the characters to a fleeting reality rife with playfully mournful fantasies of GI Joe as the family therapist and the Tooth Fairy as a singing confidant.

Through 3/2 $8-14, 8pm. Helms Theater, 109 Culbreth Rd., UVA. 924-3376.
