About this show

Signature Theatre Company continues the August Wilson Series with Two Trains Running, directed by Lou Bellamy. In 1969 Pittsburgh, the regulars at a popular local diner grind out an existence against the backdrop of a turbulent world and rapidly changing city. Memphis Lee looks to prevent the demolition of his restaurant in the face of a municipal project while across the street, Mr. West, the local funeral director, has more business than he can handle. Faced with racial inequality, a depressed economy and the threat of violence, the local residents fight to hang on to their solidarity and sense of community. Changes to regular performance schedule: Additional Wednesday Matinees December 20 and 27 at 2PM. No performance December 24 at 8 PM. Additional performances added on December 10 and 17 at 7PM
