Emily Mayer presents the world premiere of Jerry Mayer's latest play 2 Across, a comedy of crosswords and romance that takes place on a commuter train. Deborah Harmon directs.
A man and a woman who have nothing in common but their crossword puzzles are on a BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) train leaving San Francisco Airport at 4:15 a.m. on its way to the East Bay. She takes crosswords (and life) very seriously; he treats everything like a game. By the time they reach East Bay 80 minutes later their lives have changed. Over 40 Million people in the U.S. do crossword puzzles every day. Most never finish them, a driven few would rather die than give up.
