“ A powerful, still-relevant snapshot of the socially turbulent Sixties. ”
There’s a controversial new president in the White House, and racial tensions are on the rise.

It is Pittsburgh, 1969, and the regulars of Memphis Lee’s restaurant are struggling to cope with the turbulence of a rapidly changing world. The diner is in threat of being torn down, a casualty of the city’s renovation project that is sweeping away the buildings of a community, but not its spirit.

The iconic American playwright August Wilson paints a vivid portrait of everyday lives in this defining moment of American history. When Two Trains Running opened on Broadway in 1992, its legendary premiere won TONY and Drama Desk Awards. Directed by the 2018 winner of the RTST Sir Peter Hall Director Award, Nancy Medina, this major revival will introduce this Pulitzer Prize shortlisted modern classic to UK-wide audiences for the first time.

“ The richness of Wilson’s characters make them a joy to watch and a great cast lifts this tale set in Pittsburgh in 1969 ”

Beautifully acted and stirringly intense

The performances were so powerful that I was swept along 

Nancy Medina’s direction is subtle but ultimately hard-hitting, enabling her fine actors to bring home the relevance of Wilson’s American history play to our own here and now.
“ A beautifully revised staging of August Wilson’s portrait of 1960s black America ”
