Two strangers meet at a train station in the middle of the night.  At first, their concerns seem the petty worries of the everyday, but as the two men get to know each other better, the subject turns to life, death, and the meaning of existence.  It is the play that inspired Edward Albee’s masterpiece: The Zoo Story.  Luigi Pirandello won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1934 and is considered to be one of the most innovative dramatists who ever lived.  David Rainey and Jay Sullivan ponder the wonder of being alive in this thought-provoking drama.
