An Open-and-Shut Case falls Apart in Keith Huff’s Gritty Police Drama, “Six Corners”

**** Recommended **** As I started thinking about what to write about American Blues Theater’s production of Keith Huff’s noir police drama, “Six Corners”, I wanted to use words like intense, gritty, gripping, depressing – but while every one of those words apply, I think futility, frustration and anger would be better choices. The story reminded me of a runaway train – you can see where it’s going to end up but you don’t want to miss the journey. This production is so strong that, at the end, there was total silence before the audience broke into applause. 4 Spotlights
