**** Recommended **** Northlight Theatre’s gripping production of “Faceless” could have been ripped right out of the headlines – if radicalized young women were in the headlines. Selina Fellinger‘s characters were so complete, the courtroom confrontation so compelling, it’s hard to believe she’s a first-time playwright. Kudos to Northlight Artistic Director BJ Jones for recognizing this gem of a play written by a (then) Northwestern senior. 4 Spotlights
