TWO TRAINS RUNNING Comes to Syracuse Theater, 1/30-2/10

January 30
11:59 AM 2013


In Two Trains Running, an optimistic ex-con enters the insular confines of Memphis Lee's diner and awakens a cast of older and skeptical characters to the possibilities of a new era. Set in the turbulence of 1969, a time much like today, Two Trains Running is one of the most humorous and politically potent of Wilson's 20th Century Cycle plays.

Join us for a free, intimate, insightful and entertaining pre-show talk in the Sutton Pavilion led by members of the cast. One hour prior to curtain.
SUN, Feb. 3 at 1 p.m.
SAT, Feb. 9 at 2 p.m.
THURS, Feb. 14 at 6:30 p.m.

Post-Show Panel Discussion SUN, Feb. 3 after the 2 p.m. matinee performance
Join us for an insightful discussion on "August Wilson's Women: Wives, Mothers & Children of Incarcerated Black Men" moderated by SU Law Professor Paula Johnson, featuring guest panelists Vincent Love (President of 100 Black Men of Syracuse), Helen Hudson (Mothers Against Gun Violence), and Omanii Abdullah (Jail Ministry)
