New York City
Last season, Two River Theater produced August Wilson’s Jitney to critical acclaim and an extended run. This year, Tony Award-winning director Ruben Santiago-Hudson returns to our theater with a new production of Wilson’s Two Trains Running, part of his 10-play cycle about the African-American experience in each decade of the 20th century. Two Trains Running illuminates the personal stories of ordinary people against the backdrop of social change and political upheaval in the 1960s. Reviewing the original Broadway production in The New York Times, Frank Rich called the play "Wilson’s most adventurous and honest attempt to reveal the intimate heart of history."
