    TWL WIHM 2020-1: "Train Man" (Full Cast), by Cynthia Lowman

    Today we celebrate Women in Horror Month at the Wicked Library with a full cast production of "Train Man" by Cynthia Lowman.

    Ever since she was a child, Rissa has been terrified of the trains that rumbled past her house at night and the nightmares that came with them - especially those of the Train Man.

    While Rissa finds ways to cope with her fear as she grows older, she still remembers her dreams, the Train Man, and the wicked things he did.
