(*) THE CRAZY LOCOMOTIVE by Stanislaw Witkiewicz, Trinity University, April 12 - 20, 2013

Trinity University Theatre San Antonio TX


The Crazy Locomotive

by Stanislaw Witkiewicz

Directed by Kyle Gillette

Stanislaw Witkiewicz's 1923 play The Crazy Locomotive both parodies and embodies the artistic movement of futurism as well as Einstein's theory of relativity and the melodramatic conventions of silent film. Set aboard the engine room of a train hurtling toward its destruction, the play features a projected cinematic backdrop of the landscape hurtling by and the large frightening machinery of industrial modernity. As two international criminal masterminds hijack the train, they ponder the meaning of space, time, and modern art, all while driving the train toward unprecedented speeds and losing their minds in the process. Provocative, absurd, and hilarious, Witkiewicz's play asks big questions about the progress of industrial civilization and the fatal course of history.
