In December 1940, an eastbound cross-country train carries the bodies of the great American writers Nathanael West and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Elsewhere on the train, a chance encounter brings together a charming young discharged flyer, Raleigh, and shy May, a young woman who has been jilted by her soldier fiancé. As their paths continue to cross over the years, an unexpected bond blossoms. A funny, touching portrait of two people searching for happiness.

“A gently charming little play, reminiscent of Thornton Wilder in its look at rustic Americans who are to be treasured for their simplicity and directness.” ~ Associated Press
