Last Train to Nibroc

Show Dates: 6/14/2017 2:00:00 PM through 6/17/2017 6:30:00 PM

In December 1940, an eastbound cross-country train carries the bodies of the great American writers, Nathanael West and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Also on board is a young woman named May, who shares her seat with a charming military pilot, Raleigh. Religious and bookish, May plans to be a missionary, while Raleigh has just been given a medical discharge and, inspired by West and Fitzgerald, is heading to New York to be a writer. Their initial meeting, and subsequent attempts at romance over time, are funny, touching, and heartbreaking at moments. Last Train to Nibroc bowed to critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Off-Broadway, leading NYTheatre.com to proclaim it “A blissfully sweet romantic play quite unlike the typical fare offered in theatres these days.”
