Composer's note: The Train by Carl Slotboom is a play about two holocaust survivors who tell their story, remembering the events of several decades ago when they were young. It seems that many of their memories are buried, and they are reluctant to speak of that time in their lives, but the present day couple, on a train trip, finds that they are thrust into a memory loop by the train itself. The train becomes a symbol, a catalyst for something to happen. The older couple begins to remember events in their past, events that have been long buried in their memories. They discover that the presence of the past, buried and then remembered, strengthens their love and gives them hope.
