Margarett Perry directs the two-person play co-starring playwright Dykstra and Mark Boyett. Performances continue through May 30. "'Seinfeld' meets Waiting for Godot in this ferociously witty play on, about and exploding with language," according to press notes. "Rusty and Max have been friends since grade school and they've been arguing almost the entire time. Today they're scheming up something big."

Designing A Play On Words are Kelly Syring (set design), E.D. Intemann (lighting design), Hannah Kochman (costume design) and Nate Richardson (sound design).

Mark Boyett appeared in Dykstra's Clean Alternatives Off-Broadway. Dykstra has appeared in Rounding Third at Hartford's TheaterWorks, in Brian Park's Americana Absurdum in London and Off-Broadway in The Jesus Factor, Breaking Legs, Incommunicado and Tatjana in Color. His comedy has been seen on HBO's "Def Poetry Jam" and "Chappelle's Show."
