About

Directed by TIMOTHY DOUGLAS

In August Wilson’s masterpiece, history unfolds around everyday lives against the backdrop of the civil rights movement. Long-time regulars gather at the local diner in Pittsburgh’s Hill District to gossip, flirt and play the numbers. Now the owner must decide whether to let the city take over his building or sell it to a shrewd, local businessman. Part of Wilson’s trailblazing American Century Cycle, Two Trains Running paints a compassionate and unforgettable portrait of ordinary people in the midst of transformation.

“Perfection … a work by a writer at the peak of his powers.” —  Variety


ADVISORY:
August Wilson’s Two Trains Running is suitable for adults and teenage audiences. Wilson weaves a dramatic portrait of characters who discuss racial matters, engage in a few illegal activities and use adult language (including the n-word) to describe their life experiences.
