Two Trains Running- A play by August Wilson


  • Interstate Firehouse Cultural Center 5340 North Interstate Avenue Portland, OR, 97217 United States (map)

The Civil Rights Movement is sweeping across Pittsburgh’s Hill District in 1969 and Memphis Lee’s diner scheduled to be torn down, a casualty of the City’s renovation project (economic development). Struggling to cope with the rapidly changing world, Memphis and diner regulars fight to hang onto their solidarity and sense of community.

With compassion, humor and a sense of place and time, Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, August Wilson, paints a vivid portrait of everyday lives in the shadows of major events, and the unsung men and women who are anything but ordinary.
