2 Across

2 Across
In 2 Across, two middle-aged people, riding a San Francisco Bay-area subway car, work their way through a personal crisis as they both solve the same crossword puzzle. It’s a funny, smart look at how people can sometimes find answers to their own questions by solving the problems of others.

Critics have called 2 Across a “bright, witty, and poignant play” and “wonderfully entertaining.”

The production features Western Edge Theatre's artistic director Brian March and well-known local actor Barbara Metcalf, who are domestic partners in real life, and so, like the characters in the subway car, share a “bubble.”
