Boxcar

A new play by Corbin Went

About the Show

Firefly and Ida, cosmic couple, and Geraldo, a burnout musician, lead a life on the rails. From an early age, Firefly and Ida have hopped trains across the country, content with trading security for absolute freedom, the power to be anything and believe anything. As the balance tips and the couple realize they have been traveling longer than they have ever stayed put, Ida finds herself searching for the meaning of this life she has written and rewritten.
When teen runaway Alexis jumps onto the train late one night, she reignites Ida's chaotic passion. As the train rattles westward, towards the Pacific and a tiny town on the cliffs above the ocean, all the travelers must contend with the selfishness of liberty. Boxcar blends intimacy and poetry, gender and power, truth and more than truth, all set against the vastness of the American landscape.
