Amidst the Civil Rights Movement, Memphis Lee’s restaurant is slated for demolition. While Memphis fights to sell his diner for a fair price, the rest of the restaurant’s regulars search for work, love, and justice as their neighborhood continues to change in unpredictable ways. Two Trains Running explores the  identity of a black community  in the 1960s with passion, humor, and prescience, demonstrating why Wilson is one of America’s most essential voices. With his singular point of view, Resident Artist Ron OJ Parson, a leading interpreter of Wilson’s works, directs the penultimate play in Court’s ongoing commitment to staging all of Wilson’s American Century Cycle.

 

This production will be available to attend in-person.
