From Cormac McCarthy, author of No Country For Old Men and The Road comes this searing two character drama about the choice people frequently make; to go on or give in to despair. Set in a New York tenement apartment, the story focuses on two very different men, a black ex-con (Samuel L. Jackson) who claims to hear the voice of Jesus, and the white professor (Academy Award® winner Tommy Lee Jones) he stopped from throwing himself in front of an oncoming train, The Sunset Limited.
What follows is a philosophical debate with incredibly high stakes - can Black convince White that life is worth living, that once he goes out that door he should not head for a return date with the Sunset Limited? Souls are bared and secrets shared, with Black's faith increasingly challenged by White's bleak but meticulously reasoned view of a world gone wrong. The conflict reaches a shattering conclusion that will leave you thinking well after the final frame.
Premiering in 2006 at the Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago, Cormac McCarthy's "The Sunset Limited" opened off-Broadway in the fall of that year.
