The Invisible theatre continues its landmark 40th Anniversary Season with 2 ACROSS by Jerry Mayer and directed by Gail Fitzhugh. This Off-Broadway critically acclaimed comedy about a later-life romance stars IT favorites Maedell Dixon and David A. Johnston. Two strangers board a San Francisco BART train at 4:30 AM and will share an 85 minute ride from the San Francisco Airport to the end of the line, Bay Point.  With each passing stop, they learn a little bit more about each other.  It will be a trip full of surprises and hopeful possibilities as they both struggle through the New York Times crossword puzzle, using it as a metaphor of life: people who finish and people who don't; people who are committed and people who aren't.


Merl Reagle's Crosswords Books, the best Sunday Crosswords in America (Games Magazine), will be sold in the Invisible Theatre lobby during the run of the show.
