Next Train To Depart, The

"Sometimes it's amazing the lengths we'll go to, just to stand still." A call centre worker and a would-be poet form an unexpected bond over cold coffee on a railway concourse. A twist on the classic train station love story, The Next Train To Depart is a poetic play that tells the tale of a chance meeting, a platform to nowhere and the baggage we try, in vain, to leave behind.
