Why See Two Trains Running?
Two Trains Running Portrays Race in America, in a Way That Is Still Relevant Today
Award-winning play Two Trains Running provides an insight into the lives of African Americans in 1969. Premiering on Broadway in 1992, the play was an instant hit and became a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Set just a year after Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated, the play depicts the uprising of the black power movement and how attitudes toward race changed from black peoples perspective. Today, this story is just as relevant.
After its dazzling debut, the play received the Tony Award for best featured actor in a play and the Drama Desk Award for outstanding featured actor in a Play, amongst many more.
