Last Train to Nibroc
By Arlene Hutton
A funny, touching portrait of two people searching for happiness…
Last Train to Nibroc is a simple, honest and genuine play about a young man and woman who meet on a train at the beginning of World War II. Raleigh has just been discharged from the military due to his epilepsy, while May is returning from a disappointing visit with her fiancé on leave in California. After May grudgingly allows Raleigh to sit next to her, it kicks off a love story that runs the length of the war. The two come to find out that they grew up in neighboring small towns in Kentucky. May is returning to hers, but Raleigh is taking the train all the way to New York City. There, he dreams of becoming a writer, much like recently deceased F. Scott Fitzgerald and Nathanael West — who are in the baggage car.
