After-Play concerns two aging couples arguing over the meaning of a play at a midtown restaurant -- or is it?

Designing After are James Youmans (set), Paulie Jenkins (lighting), Zoe DuFour (costumes) and Jon Gottlieb (sound). Barry Brown and Judith Resnick are producing this mounting of the Off-Broadway hit.

For information on After at the Canon Theatre through May 31, call (310) 859-8001 or 859-2830.
