Judgment Day by Christopher Shinn

A meticulous and respected stationmaster struggles to overcome his guilt when he finds himself suddenly culpable for a violent train crash that results in eighteen deaths. As the community come together to grieve, they succumb to a mob mentality that threatens to ostracize anyone who challenges the collective definition of morality and truth.

An intriguing hybrid of theatrical genres, Ödön von Horváth's 1937 play is part moral fable, part socio-political commentary and part noir-ish thriller.

Adapted by Obie Award-winner and Pulitzer Prize nominee Christopher Shinn, this thrilling new take on a classic play asks contemporary questions that resonate in our current political climate.

This edition was published to coincide with the world premiere at New York's Park Armory in December 2019.
