A tender story about an unlikely friendship
Set in the great depression, Boxcar tells the story of a young boy named Charlie who befriends two hobos camped out on the edge of his family’s property. As this tender story unfolds and soars, Boxcar explores the deep struggles of 1930s era Americana while celebrating the ultimate triumph that comes from one human being coming to the aid of another in tough times.
“Laurie was one of the authors of Loose Lips Sink Ships and James composed the music for Victory Farm,” said Artistic Director, Jeff Herbst. “It’s exciting to have these two accomplished artists collaborating for the first time on a Northern Sky world premiere.”
