Two Trains Running | Print |

WHO: Fulton County Arts & Culture in partnership with Kenny Leon’s True Colors Theatre Company

WHAT: The Fulton County Department of Arts and Culture’s Southwest Arts Center invites you to see “Two Trains Running” Directed by Latanya Richardson Jackson and Written by August Wilson.

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.
