Can Things We Do For Love be performed in-the-round or any other non end-stage space?
Things We Do For Love was specifically written for end-stage / proscenium arch spaces. The nature of the set requires an end-stage space for it to work effectively and as the playwright intended.

I've seen Things We Do For Love referred to as The Things We Do For Love, is this correct or an alternative title?
No, it's not correct and is generally just laziness on the part of whoever wrote it. The play's title is Things We Do For Love and has always been that. Any other variation is a mistake and, in the case of incorrectly labelled performance publicity, is actually breaking the terms of the performance license for the play.
