N. Richard Nash's "Echoes" is a fairly bare production: The story is written for three actors and usually performed with meager setting. That stripped-down nature, though, prompts the audience — along with its characters — to question the reality and illusion within the play. A young man and woman are confined to an asylum, and kept watch over by a silent psychiatrist, "The Person." As their time together passes with "pretend" games, like decorating Christmas trees that aren't there, they build a sort of paradise together, which becomes endangered when the outside world starts to intrude. Directed by Wayne Alan Dunbar and featuring actors Stephanie Roosa, Paul Vincent, and Nancy Berg. "Echoes" is the first mainstage production of Out of Pocket's 10th season.
