BY SEAN MCCARTHY
Though the train in the play
“Last Train to Nibroc" doesn’t
derail, it ultimately throws two
characters off of their set tracks
and into each other’s lives.
The play, which opened at
the Studio Theatre Thursday
night, was written by Arlene
Hutton. It is directed by Stan
Brown, associate professor of
theatre arts at UNL. The two
characters, May and Raleigh, are
played by Kaitlin Byrd and
This is Brown’s directorial
debut at the University of
Nebraska-Lincoln. Before com
ing to Lincoln, Brown taught at
Towson University, near
Baltimore. Though he tradition
ally teaches courses on vocal
delivery, Brown was compelled
to direct after reading the play.
“It was wonderful," Brown
said. “Someone was actually
writing this for the theater."
While the faculty was sorting
through plays to perform this
semester, Brown said the major
ity of them read like episodes of
“Friends" or “Mad About You"
transferred to the stage.
The play, set in Corbin, Ky.,
consists of three scenes. A
bench serves as the focal point
in each scene as it is trans
formed from a train seat to a
park bench to the front porch of
May's house. Brown said he was
happy with the space of the
“It was perfect," he said, “It
needed to be intimate because
there are only two characters in
The theme of chance and
destiny was a key issue Brown
wanted to address in the play.
The play emphasizes that a per
son's plans are just a map to the
territory they actually travel.
“You can’t chase your
dreams without running into
your destiny," he said.
“Last Train to Nibroc" is
playing at the Studio Theatre in
the Temple Building.
Performances will run through
March 10 and will resume after
Spring Break from March 20-24.
Shows will start at 7:30 p.m. for
each performance. Tickets are
