 “…a blissfully sweet romantic play.” —NYTheatre.com.

This simply staged romance is set in 1940. Raleigh is a young, recently discharged serviceman with plans to become a writer. May is a school teacher in small-town Kentucky. When they meet on a cross-country train trip, they discover they are from neighboring towns. Love blooms but complications abound as they navigate the tough times of a country at war.

“…a gently charming little play, reminiscent of Thornton Wilder in its look at rustic Americans who are to be treasured for their simplicity and directness…” —Associated Press.
