Playhouse on Park to Present THE TRESTLE AT POPE LICK CREEK, 5/15-18

With a story that explores a world where people struggle to change the lives that bear down upon them, Playhouse on Park presents The Trestle at Pope Lick Creek by Naomi Wallace. This production will conclude the 2014 Playhouse on the Edge series, which made its debut earlier this season.

High atop a railroad trestle that spans a dried up creek, two teenagers plan to race across the bridge against an oncoming locomotive. At first their scheme adds excitement to their life in a small factory town during the Great Depression, but their sensual experience, dawning sexuality and confusion awakens dangerous passions in an era of stifled ambitions. With theatrical flourish, humor and lyrical finesse, The Trestle at Pope Lick Creek is a piece that, "like that train, [builds] up a full head of steam and we feel its power" (NY Times).

The Trestle at Pope Lick Creek runs May 15th through May 18th. This production is recommended for audiences 16 and up due to mature content. For more information about times and tickets, visit www.playhouseonpark.org, or call 860-523-5900 x10.
