The production continues through July 19.

Michael Michetti directs the two-hander, which stars Will Bradley ("The Normal Heart," "Pretty Little Liars") and Robert Mammana ("The Office," "The Good Wife").

"Based on a little-known incident in LA history, this theatrical thrill ride explores the collision of reality and fantasy as two actors juggle various roles to entrap homosexuals for 'social vagrancy' in the public restrooms of 1914 Long Beach," press notes state. "But are they actually entrapping each other? Who they are and what they need is a mystery that deepens with every twist and turn."

The Twentieth-Century Way earned Jacobson a PEN Center USA Award for Drama, and was awarded Overall Excellence in Production of a Play at the 2010 NY International Fringe Festival.

Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre is located at 224 Waverly Place. Visit Rattlestick.org for more information.
