Strangers on a Train
Two strangers, united by book and by chance. A fortuitous accident that might mean new hope for them both - if only they can look up from their lives to seize it. They don’t know it, but they’re hurtling toward a crossroad; a choice. To leap into a new chapter, or sit back and let the future fade. The riveting duo of Sarah Day and Brian Mani infuse their shared train car with crackling anticipation. You can't help but be swept away on this witty and surprisingly suspenseful ride.
Featuring: Sarah Day & Brian Mani
June - October, 2017
Yasmina Reza, author of the international hit Art, brings her unique style of existential comedy to the Touchstone Theatre. Two strangers on a train – an author and a devoted fan – have a secret power struggle as they silently size each other up while reflecting on the decisions and events that led them to their shared train car. A story told through a series of fascinating and funny internal monologues, as two brilliant, lonely people search for a moment of connection.
