Train for Two

Based on a True Story

An award-winning drama that examines the power of choice in the context of the Holocaust and the post-war era. 


The Show

Train for Two uses movement, music, and edge-of-the-seat dialogue to examine the power of choice in the context of the Holocaust and the post-war era. The play is an original piece, based on the true story of the director's (Dan Petrenko) family. Told through flashbacks to the past as well as a contemporary encounter between two strangers on a train, the narrative explores the extremes of human sacrifice in a state of crisis.

Returning from its U.S. tour with a powerful cast, original music by up-and-coming composer Yan Shvartsman, and choreography by Veronika Bah, Train for Two is an emotional and thought-provoking journey through time.
