Performance Notes

Nanaimo’s Western Edge Theatre moves to the Port Theatre in October for “2 Across.” a production that’s as socially-distanced as it is funny.

“Western Edge has been looking at ways to produce that follow all health guidelines and use actors in the same bubble,” says artistic director Brian March. “We’ve come up with ‘2 Across’ by Jerry Mayer, a delightful romantic comedy.” 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.”
