PTP/NYC is known for producing politically aware plays.  They present theatrically complex and thought-provoking works of contemporary social and cultural relevance.  For their abbreviated season this year, they are streaming four productions over four weeks.  The second one, Don't Exaggerate (desire and abuse), certainly fits the bill.  Howard Barker's work is subtitled, 'a political statement in the form of hysteria.'
