Director Jay O’Berski’s production design for Manbites Dog Theater’s regional premiere of “Cape Disappointment” is ingenious, and his staging is imaginative; but they cannot compensate for the fact that the episodic script is a shaggy-dog story, with vivid vignettes chock-full of colorful characters embarked on an journey to … nowhere.
You’re lost in a drive-in movie. Broken down by the side of the road to nowhere. There’s a thirty ought six pointed at your back, and you ate the last can of beans three days ago. Welcome to Cape Disappointment. At least it’s not Detroit.
