Playwright/director Phil Darg slices off a piece of life on which we rarely enjoy musing. The principal character in “Facility” is an old man living in a care facility and suffering the indignities that attend the end of life. Actor Paul Brissett does a convincing job with the manner of the old man and Darg has quite a sharp ear for how a patient with dementia will speak. But there is a lot of lint in the script and Darg misses a chance to go deeper with his play, which feels largely earthbound. (2:30 p.m. Sat., 7 p.m. Wed., 10 p.m. Sat. Aug. 12, 1 p.m. Sun.
