Tracks: A Cycle in Two Plays
Tracks is a cycle of two plays that examine where we have been, what lies ahead, the connections we make, the light at the end and the darkness that creeps in around the edges. In "Station" we meet two lost travelers who must discover a way to exit a seemingly inescapable train station. In the process, they encounter others who both illuminate and confuse them, as they are forced to find strength in each other and ultimately fight for their very survival and struggle onward toward the light. "Train Song" finds a young man, Lyle Tanner, arriving at a battered old train shack in a forgotten railroad yard, late at night, during the worst blizzard of the decade. He has come to make the caretaker--an old man who has lived there for years--an offer he can't refuse. But the old man has a secret, one that will force Lyle to look inward and reexamine everything he thought he knew.
