In this lyrical, searing one-act, an American soldier has an unexpected encounter with two Afghan sisters who are ready to embark on a new life. Their fates-and his-become entangled as the lines between their divergent realities become dangerously blurred. "NO SUCH COLD THING unsettles the ground beneath our feet much as Wallace's] characters have found it vanishing beneath their own. The characters are pitched, dreamlike, somewhere between life and death as Wallace expertly pinpoints the reality of war in the magical-surreal of dramatic imagination." Robert Avila, San Francisco Bay Guardian "In their existential disorientation, Wallace's Middle East plays escape the logic, the prison and the sentimental cliches of a realistic and more sociable theatre, because their impatient narratives take shape only to disintegrate, their dramatic value heightened by the instability of the drama itself." Randy Gener, American Theatre.
