National Anthems

1988
Character: Ben Cook
Directors: Arvin Brown
Writers: Dennis McIntyre
Cast: Kevin Spacey, Tom Berenger, Mary McDonell
Storyline:
Dennis McIntyre's excoriating new play, ''National Anthems,'' at the Long Wharf Theater, is an assault on traditional American values. The playwright looks into the world of a prototypical yuppie couple (Tom Berenger and Mary McDonnell) in a well-to-do suburb of Detroit and finds that their apparent rise is actually a holding pattern.Kevin Spacey is like a figure from a Thomas Berger novel or a Harold Pinter play. Under his manipulation, conversation becomes unilateral interrogation, as the stranger leaves an elusive trail of his own unanswered questions, including the nature of his profession and his reasons for intruding on the couple's privacy.

(New York Times, Mel Gussow)
