“It is 1968 in Pittsburgh. The people of this play...have loud voices and big hearts. They search. They falter. They continue. In the end, they are not overwhelmed. For here there are warriors and saints. Here there is a drumbeat fueled by the blood of Africa. And through it all there are the lessons, the wounds of history. There are always and only two trains running. There is life and there is death. Each of us rides them both. To live life with dignity, to celebrate and accept responsibility for your presence in the world is all that can be asked of anyone. Pittsburg, 1968, the long line of forever stretches into the future and the last night of the universe is already suspect and falling.” -August Wilson
