Two strangers on a train. One is a famous author, the other a great admirer of his. Will she have the nerve to bring his latest book out of her bag and read it? Or better yet, will she have the nerve to speak to him? In searching monologues, author and admirer reveal the rich unpredictability of their inner lives, and a journey that began simply as a trip from Paris to Frankfurt becomes an adventure of the mind.
"Reza's artful play may persuade you that there is nothing of greater value in all the world than a brief encounter between strangers on a train." —The New Yorker. "This is a subtle, touching work about lonely people who allow only their imaginations to run wild." —NY Daily News. "…an elegant, witty little play full of sad observations about life and loneliness, about the ways fantasies can shape encounters." —NY Post.
