Last Train to Nibroc is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.
Last Train to Nibroc is a blissfully charming and romantic play about two strangers whose lives are forever changed when they meet on a cross country train ride in December of 1940. May, a bookish and religious small town girl, shares her seat with a charming young flyer named Raleigh, who is heading to New York to become a writer. After Raleigh and May discover they are from neighboring Appalachian towns, they consider changing course when he invites her to the next Nibroc Festival.
Set against the backdrop of the second world war, May and Raleigh’s courtship takes many detours over the next several years, but their undeniable connection remains in this nostalgic and touching portrait of two people searching for happiness when America was changing forever.
Grandstreet’s production will be an exciting opportunity to simultaneously offer live performances at the theater alongside digital performances online. Join us as we continue to explore new ways of theatrical storytelling that are better suited to our current health restrictions.
