2 Across by Jerry Mayer
Two strangers board a San Francisco BART train at 4:30 a.m. They're alone in the car, both are doing the New York Times crossword. She's an organized, sensible psychologist. He's a free-spirited, unemployed ad exec. She is a crossword pro, he always quits. When he tosses his puzzle away, she snaps, "Crosswords are a metaphor for life, those who finish, succeed, those who don't, fail." This starts an eighty-minute ride described by critics as "Hilarious," "Witty," "Romantic," "Poignant," and "Wonderfully entertaining." Two opposites in an enclosed space, attacking each other's values but also being swayed and intrigued by them. They each have serious life problems that the other helps solve.
The evening will begin at 7:00pm with a brief reception in the Liberty Lobby, featuring wine, tea, and coffee, served with complimentary chocolate desserts. The performance begins at approximately 7:30pm and ends around 9:00pm.
