Kenny Leon and True Colors Theatre Company have announced August Wilson's Two Trains Running directed by LaTanya Richardson Jackson. Two Trains Running will run from February 12 - March 10, 2013 at Fulton County's Southwest Arts Center located at 915 New Hope Road, Atlanta, GA 30331.
Set in 1969, the Hill District of Pittsburgh is gentrifying while the regulars at a popular local diner grind out an existence against the backdrop of a turbulent world. Memphis Lee looks to prevent the demolition of his restaurant in the face of a municipal project while across the street, Mr. West, the local funeral director, has more business than he can handle.
It takes a newcomer named Sterling - a young convict with a heart that lives up to his name - to change the rules of the game. Unknowingly, the regulars take up a fight that carries them head on into the Civil Rights Movement. Two Trains Running is an inspiring story about the protest that changed a nation.
