Two Trains Running at RoundHouse Theatre April 2-27, 2014
A potent story told with humor and grace, Two Trains Running is a searing Pulitzer Prize-winning play by August Wilson. Showing at Bethesda's Round House Theatre from April 2-27, 2014, this play is about the inner lives of ordinary people in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Set at an important time in American history, 1969, Two Trains Running is the tale of Memphis, the owner of a run-down diner in a neighborhood that seems to be wasting away. Memphis must make a crucial decision and is torn between two options. Should he sell his building to a questionable businessman, or gamble on an urban-renewal buyout? With messages of struggle that resonate even stronger today, this humorous play highlights an essential human dilemma: idealism or reality? Join the audience as they witness a practical distillation of the civil rights movement, told with panache on the stage.
Two Trains Running shows every evening except for Sunday and Monday, with matinee performances on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets cost $25-50 and can be purchased in advance online through the Round House Theatre website. After your night at the theatre, return to our charming hotel to relax and recount the performance.
