The cast includes Ruy Iskandar (The Public Theater's Measure for Measure and Classic Stage Company's Purimcelo) as Ma and Yuekun Wu (Theater for the New City's Love in Tears and Laughter & Luo Shen: Legend of the Luo River) as Lone.

On a California mountaintop in 1867 near the Transcontinental Railroad, two Chinese workers struggle through poverty and hunger to reconnect with the traditions of their homeland. The Dance and the Railroad follows the twice-extended GOLDEN CHILD as the second production in the Residency One: David Henry Hwang Series.
