Boy Gets Girl This harrowing story of a stalker is far richer than the stuff you get ad nauseam on Lifetime. A writer (Mary Beth Fisher) is being victimized after two casual dates, her stalker (Ian Lithgow) so relentless she’s forced to consider abandoning her identity. Playwright Rebecca Gilman likes to venture into raw-edged territory, which she handles with wit, gravity, and a certain detachment. The play begins as an already interesting comedy of the sexes, then drops through a trapdoor into sadness. To her credit, Gilman offers up lots of ideas while maintaining the tension of a thriller. B+
