The community is invited to join Inner City Theater, Inc. as they bring another classic piece of American theater to life with their production of August Wilson’s “Two Trains Running”.

It’s 1969, and change is in the air. But for the owner of a threadbare diner in a dying Pittsburgh neighborhood, the Civil Rights Movement may just be an impractical dream. Torn between whether to gamble on an urban-renewal buyout or sell his building to a predatory businessman, he finds himself caught between idealism and brutal reality.

Wilson’s searing portrait of African-American life in the ‘60s tells a complex story of the inner lives of ordinary people at an explosive turning point in American history. Truly an opportunity you do not want to miss!

The show will open January 16th at 7pm at Gran Phinal`e Hall, 4509 Pacific Ave., and will continue to run throughout the month. General tickets are $15; students and seniors pay $12.

For more information, call 209.464.2313.
