Leon Addison Brown takes center stage in Signature Theatre Co’s The Train Driver, which opened last week at Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre and will play through Sept 23.

The play, written and directed by South African playwright Athol Fugard, examines conscience and responsibility in the time of apartheid when a man unintentionally kills a mother and child with his train. The play is being billed as “a soulful exploration of guilt, suffering, and the powerful bonds that grow between strangers.”

The production is the final installment in Signature’s Residency One: Athol Fugard Series. “Blood Knot” and “My Children! My Africa!” preceded it.

Brown’s theater credits include Off-Broadway’s “The Orphans’ Home Cycle” and “Two Trains Running.”

For tickets or more information, call (212) 244-7529 or visit signaturetheatre.org. The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre is located at The Pershing Square Signature Center, 480 W. 42nd Street ( bet. 9th and 10th Avenues) in New York City.
