Lee Blessing's plays have always shown a wonderful knack for vivid story-telling (A Walk In The Woods, Cobb), but in his new Off-Broadway offering, A Body Of Water, the author is intentionally not telling us the story. Likewise, I won't be completely telling you the story of why I found the piece, on the whole, a letdown, because to do so would reveal too many details best explained on the playwright's timeline. But if I found fault with the play itself, director Maria Mileaf's Primary Stages production is a fine mounting.
