2 Across

  • Amoskeag Studio 250 Commercial Street, Suite 2007 (South Entrance) Manchester, NH 03101 (map)

Join us for a night of theater with the one act play, "2 Across," performed by Lend Me a Theater.

Two strangers, a man and a woman, board a San Francisco BART train at 4:30 AM. They're alone in the car, each is married, both are doing the New York Times crossword. She is 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." Now he vows to finish. Why? He's a competitor, and she happens to be lovely.

This starts an hour long ride described by critics as "hilarious, witty, romantic, poignant, and wonderfully entertaining.”
