A young couple moves into an empty room and begin to construct a life together. Should the bed go here and the table go there? Or the bed there and the table here? Everything inside this small space is for them  to decide; what is right or wrong? The responsibility is daunting. But how can they decide anything when the other person keeps disagreeing and when the woman downstairs maddeningly dumps unwanted furniture on them that they do not have the heart to refuse? To purchase tickets visit: or call the ACC Box Office at 729-3900.
