New York City
Part of August Wilson’s award-winning 10-play cycle about the African-American experience during the 20th century, Two Trains Running takes place inside a Pittsburgh diner at the end of the 1960s. The Civil Rights Movement is slowly fading, and urban renewal has begun its destructive path through the once successful community. While the diner’s owner fights to receive a fair price for his property, his neighborhood clientele weave a rich tapestry of experiences and survive the economic hardships of their time with ingenuity and wit. Seret Scott directs.
