Overview

“Four Stars! Fugard shows that potent, engaged theater is not yet six feet under”

-David Cote, Time Out New York

“Riveting drama!

Roelf, a train driver, has spent weeks searching for the identities of a mother and child he unintentionally killed with his train. After a fruitless journey through shanty towns, he encounters an old gravedigger named Simon who helps the desperate man unburden his conscience.

Based on a true story, The Train Driver is a soulful exploration of guilt, suffering, and the powerful bonds that grow between strangers.
