The Sunset Limited by Cormac McCarthy
Actors Workshop (Theatre) of Sacramento
The Sunset Limited by: Cormac McCarthy
Directed by: Mark Heckman
Starring: James Wheatley (Artistic Director at Celebrations Arts in Sacramento, and winner of The Lifetime Achievement Award at this years Elly Ceremony)
And Edward Claudio (Artistic Director at Actors Workshop of Sacramento, and winner of The Lifetime Achievement Award at this years Elly Ceremony)

Plot of Play: The play involves only two nameless characters, designated "White" and "Black", their respective skin colors. Offstage, just before the play begins, Black saves White from throwing himself in front of a train. The title, The Sunset Limited, is derived from the name of a passenger train that travels from New Orleans to Los Angeles. All of the action takes place in Black's sparse apartment, where the characters go (at the behest of Black) after their encounter on the platform. Black is an ex-convict and an evangelical Christian. White is an atheist and a professor. They debate the meaning of human suffering, the existence of God, and the propriety of White's attempted suicide.

About Cormac McCarthy: He is an American novelist and playwright. He won the Pulitzer Prize and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Fiction for "The Road" in 2006 and the book was adapted into a movie in 2009 starring, Viggo Mortensen. His 2005 novel "No Country for Old Men" was adapted as a 2007 film of the same name, which won four Academy Awards, including Best Picture. For "All the Pretty Horses" (1992) he won both the U.S. National Book Award and National Book Critics Circle Award.
