“An incredible success.” – The Corriere Adriatico

“incredibly inventive – ★★★★ ” – The Stage

“a high-speed journey through a traumatised mind” – The Guardian

Imagine a world that exists solely as a train. Imagine a woman who is given a job that she knows will put her life in jeopardy, one that takes her on a journey into her own heart of darkness. Find yourself moving through carriages witnessing the strange encounters with people who would seem to have much more information about what is happening than you. Imagine entering a terrible nightmare in which those who you assume are dead tell you what your future might bring you. Imagine you are at a door, looking at the moving tracks and you jump. Again and again.

Imagine this and you are in The Train.
