About This Show

Railroad Backward, written and directed by Kestutis Nakas traces a Chicago man’s bizarre journey through frontier Illinois. He meets Abraham Lincoln, discovers the secret of the "reverse underground-railroad", becomes a pirate and joins desperadoes spreading terror throughout the frontier. Finally, he bears witness to a shocking crime that changes history. It is an American Heart of Darkness, but funnier. Original songs evoke the sounds of our country’s past.
