The 52 victims that perished during the London bombings are paid homage in Pornography, which Stephens does tastefully and without delving into controversy or an attempt to comment on morality. The dead are treated as individuals with unique life stories, not as a mass casualty that can be grouped into a simple sum number. It is here that Pornography departs from the alienation of human civility and vulgarity that otherwise envelops the play. This edgy drama is not for the easily offended, so take heed. Pornography runs now through April 8 at Burning Coal Theatre.
