Two men: a youth minister and a drifter.
Two trains: both departing from the same place, for the same place, at the exact same time.
A seemingly benign conversation between two strangers develops increasingly dubious as the true intentions of the wayward vagabond are revealed.
This dark poignant drama takes a hard look at faith, evil, and the classic conflict of Man versus God.
A MYSTERIOUS WAY plays the following schedule through Sunday, June 21:
Thursday at 8pm
Friday at 8pm
Saturday at 8pm
Sunday at 2pm
Ticket price is FREE! The cost of your metro card will get you into the show. To reserve a place on a blanket, visit www.firebonetheatre.com. Additionally, due to the ever changing nature of the MTA visit the website to confirm the exact location of the show on the date you intend to attend.
