Developed through the 2018 DNA New Works Series, playwright Keith Burn and director Tyne Rafaeli bring to life a story that Rich Family Artistic Directior Christopher Ashley says is “an empathetic and humane tribute to all the people who – like [Keith], and like me – came to California chasing a dream.”

The Coast Starlight follows a young man who, one morning, boards the Coast Starlight, the long-distance train that runs from Los Angeles to Seattle. He’s got a secret that can land him in terrible trouble, and he has roughly one thousand miles to enlist the help of his fellow travelers – all of whom are reckoning with their own choices in search of a way forward.

Keith Bunin’s new play is a smart, funny and compassionate story about our capacity for invention and re-invention when life goes off the rails.
