The Coast Starlight

One morning, a young man boards the Coast Starlight, the long-distance train that runs from Los Angeles to Seattle. He's got a secret that can land him in terrible trouble, and he has roughly one thousand miles to enlist the help of his fellow travelers - all of whom are reckoning with their own choices in search of a way forward. Keith Bunin's new play is a smart, funny and compassionate story about our capacity for invention and re-invention when life goes off the rails.
