Description

In December 1940, two Kentuckians meet cute on a very special train heading east bound for New York. Raleigh is a soldier facing medical discharge (he’s an epileptic) who aspires to become a writer; May has deeply religious feelings and wants to be a missionary. They’re two very different people, but as the story of Arlene Hutton’s 1999 play unfolds, the audience will witness Raleigh and May’s growing mutual attraction over the course of a couple of years in this unusual love story, which Hutton claims she loosely based on the romance between her own parents.

Hutton is a remarkably prolific playwright whose other works include Women@Work_, Lights Up!, Corbin, Kentucky, As It Is in Heaven, Academia _and much more.

The show runs approximately one hour and 40 minutes with no intermission.
