WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Four new plays in one week uncovering America. Trains Running - April 16 at 7pm 1940 ~ 1945 While hell rages in Europe, American soldiers ruminate about their future on the night before they ship out - and they find out war is not only over there. A play about dreams and sacrifice, fear and resilience. Snow in Trees - April 18 at 7pm 1946 ~ 1949 Out of ashes, a new forest grows. Out of war, a family reunited has to face what they abandoned. A play about denial and redemption. The Letter - April 20 at 7pm 1950 ~ 1959 As a suburban father walks from his house to his curbside mailbox the film of his life follows him. A play about confronting the loneliness of daily life and the small surprises that help us keep going. Horses Race Electric - April 22 at 7pm 1960 ~ 1969 Another war, a cultural revolution, battles for civil rights - America erupts. Three young friends face their adulthood with uncertainty, ambition, loyalty and humor. A play about the search for identity, with a little sex on the side.
