Casual dress, arrive early - open seating - although all seats have good view of stage, as the theater is small.

Look for the Hub Theatre Co. sign as the Swayze Theatre is not marked.

This is an interesting show dealing with the relationship of this couple. Both of the actors did a superb job! This theater company does great work and is worth the trip to Fairfax.

The two characters were 'out there' and it took a while to suspend belief enough to get into the story. But once I did, I really enjoyed the play.
