About this show

When a small band of outcasts and super villains hijack a locomotive engine, they determine to race it full-throttle into an oncoming passenger train in order to experience the very Mystery of Existence, but will their high-speed adventure send them headlong into another dimension, or are they only heading for disaster? Written in 1923, this avant-garde gem serves as Witkiewicz's indictment against futurism and the cinema, and the worship of the machine. Equal parts paradox and parody, metaphysics and mayhem, The Crazy Locomotive will take audiences on a dream-like journey into madness.
