PURGATORY TRAIN

A play's development:

After starting this in an HB Studio playwriting class in 2016, it stayed in my drawer four years, till March 2020. As I was trying to figure out how to navigate the theater without a live audience, I thought that this piece could maybe work as a radio drama. While rewriting this in the Greenhouse Ensemble writer’s group, some circumstances altered, and the characters became best friends, who just died in an accident and are stuck in purgatory. During my senior year of High School, my friends Michael and Jack passed away in a car crash. One thing that helped me through this time of loss is that I had a dream of being in the back seat of Jack's car, and fiddling around with his car radio like he always did, Jack turned back and said "I'm sorry for speeding.”  

Synopsis:

Two best friends are stuck in limbo on an old diesel train. Gabe wants to stay for their graduation ceremony and an unfinished game of poker, while Dave, wants to start the train and leave, unsure where the tracks will take them.
