*Dana Kreitz and Griffin Stanton-Ameisen are a married couple in reality and reside in the same household. This was a coincidence in casting that allowed both actors to share one screen for this production. Passage Theatre follows all COVID-19 guidelines and would not have actors in the same space under any other circumstances.
