August Wilson's Urban Drama Two Trains Running
In the wake of a controversial election, the country is divided. Racial tensions are running high.

The diner has been slated for demolition as part of the city's urban renewal plan, and the place's owner, Memphis Lee, finds himself caught between idealism and brutal reality as he struggles to determine the fate of the place where his customers have gathered for decades to share their struggles, hopes and dreams. A humorous and poignant portrait of African-American life in the '60s, this acclaimed production from Washington, D.C.'s Arena Stage has now been extended. Don't miss your chance to see a vibrant take on a classic and timely play.
