About the Show/Event
Information for Two Trains Running at Royal & Derngate, Northampton (Play). Set in Pittsburgh, 1969, and the regulars of Memphis Lee's restaurant are struggling to cope with the turbulence of a world that is changing rapidly around them. The diner is scheduled to be torn down, a casualty of the city's renovation project that is sweeping away the buildings of a community, but not its spirit. With compassion and humour, the master American playwright August Wilson paints a vivid portrait of everyday lives in the shadow this defining moment in American history. When Two Trains Running premiered on Broadway in 1992, its production won TONY, Drama Desk and Lucille Lortel awards and was shortlisted for the 1992 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Royal
