Pullman Car Hiawatha is a one-act comedy, set in a Pullman car on a train traveling from New York to Chicago in December 1930. However, in our production, we wanted it to reflect Wilder's staging techniques in our contemporary time. The production reflected the issues that 21st-century people still grapple with. Pullman Car takes us on a metaphorical journey by train through the American landscape with diverse travelers confined in a Pullman car through time, space, and a range of emotions.
