Kaaterskill Actors Theater presents

In December, 1940, a east-bound cross-country train carries the bodies of the great American writers F. Scott Fitzgerald and Nathaniel West from Los Angeles to New York.  Also  on board (and very much alive) is May, a young woman engrossed in her book and her dreams of becoming a missionary.   She reluctantly shares her seat with a charming young pilot, Raleigh, who is coming back from L.A. stunned by a piece of bad news. 

Sparks fly, feelings are bruised and the prospect of war shadows everything as the train carries them to their separate destinations.  Filled with humor and pathos, this play is bound to touch the hearts of everyone who sees it.  A funny and fierce portrait of two people searching for happiness, this romance has played to critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Festival, Off-Broadway and at scores of theatres across the United States.
