“Two Trains Running”

http://truecolorstheatre.org/events.cfm?eventid=2

 

Written by August Wilson

Directed by LaTanya Richardson Jackson (Actress, Director, wife of Samuel L. Jackson)

 

In 1969, the Hill District of Pittsburgh is gentrifying while the regulars at a popular local diner grind out an existence against the backdrop of a turbulent world. 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.

It takes a newcomer named Sterling - a young convict with a heart that lives up to his name - to change the rules of the game. Unknowingly, the regulars take up a fight that carries them head on into the Civil Rights Movement. Two Trains Running is an inspiring story about the protest that changed a nation.
