Jessica Chastain, Bill Heck, Lorenzo Pisoni at Signature Theatre's Train Driver Opening
On Sunday, September 9, Signature Theatre's production of The Train Driver opened at the company's Pershing Square Signature Center, where it will run through September 23. This is the final production in the Residency One: Athol Fugard Series.
Based on a true story, the play centers on Roelf (played by Ritchie Coster), a train driver, who has spent weeks searching for the identities of a mother and child he unintentionally killed with his train. After a fruitless journey through shanty towns, he encounters an old gravedigger named Simon (played by Leon Addison Brown) who helps the desperate man unburden his conscience.
