A play by Sivan Ben-Yishai
Directed by Tina Satter

A high speed train approaches an unknown destination through the dark night under the earth. Nine older women are sitting neatly in a row on a bench on the train. The further the train speeds along, the more painful the memories become. The passengers recount the wars they survived, motherhood, the sexual abuse and more.

The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center presents World Voices: International Play Festival 2019: play readings with some of the most significant theatre artists from Germany, all connected to the Gorki Theater in Berlin—a safe haven for immigrant, refugee and international theatre artists in Europe.  

The International Play Festival generates a conversation on art, politics, dreams, war, and philosophy, meant to give American audiences a rich awareness of the greater global dialogue.
