“We’re all changing. We’re all riding this country’s future like this train’s a’rolling along the track, just hoping we get somewhere and don’t run off the tracks somewhere along the way.” December 28, 1940. Raleigh, an officer on medical discharge, first meets May, an aspiring missionary, on a cross-country train, although they live only miles apart in Kentucky. In three scenes over three years, they laugh, relate, misunderstand, clash and observe what’s happening in the world and each other. Last Train to Nibroc is a timely love story that “weave[s] the epic and the incidental with the lightest and least obtrusive thread.” Ginia Bellafante, New York Times. Subscription and single tickets already purchased for An Inspector Calls can be applied to this production.
