Winner of the YouthPLAYS New Voices One-Act Play Competition, and originally produced in the Blank Theatre Company Young Playwrights Festival (Los Angeles, CA).
Two teenagers, Sonny and Adelie, seemingly opposites and headed in opposite directions, meet at an empty train station in the middle of the night. Adelie has run away from her exclusive East Coast boarding school to find her mother in Los Angeles, whom she has never met. Sonny has run away from his broken home in Los Angeles to make it big in New York, the city of his dreams. Despite their differences, the two form an unexpected connection which will last them much longer than a few hours on platform nine.
