C.A.G.E. Theatre Company will present – as part of the first fall season of the New York International Fringe Festival – FringeNYC – The Long Rail North, written by award-winning playwright, Michael Hagins, and directed by former Planet Connections Artistic Director, Brock H. Hill.
The Long Rail North centers on Pvt. Thomas Morgan, a black union soldier, who must escape via train with a young southern white girl named Molly Barnes that he rescued from a plantation fire of a nearby Civil War battle. Exhausted, with limited resources and even fewer allies, Morgan (played by Xavier Rodney) continues traveling north getting Molly to safety – despite her racist view of him and his race. Regardless of his good intentions, both union and confederate forces pursue them.
Mr. Rodney is joined by Jordyn Morgan, Rich Wisneski, Anna M. Hogan, and Michael J. Whitten.
The C.A.G.E. (Classical Avant-Garde Experimental) Theatre of New York City begins its 14th season with this world premiere by founder, Michael Hagins. The company – dedicated to bringing classical works to modern audiences in new and fascinating ways have presented works including Two Gentlemen of Verona: A Swashbuckling Comedy! and A 1940’s Comedy of Errors.
Stage Manager: Liza Penney; Technical Director: Melissa Farinelli; Costume Designer: Janet Mervin.
