______ (m), railroad official; ________ (m), brakeman; ________ (m), ________; ________ (f), ________.
“[Following a trainwreck, the] railroad official discovers the brakeman failed to throw the switch at precisely 10:16 A.M. because he didn’t have a watch! ‘A railroad man without a watch is like a prostitute without a bed. If you didn’t know what time it was, how could you possibly hope to switch the Ten Fifteen at precisely ten sixteen?’ Brakeman: ‘I said I didn’t have a watch. That does not mean I don’t know the time I go by instinct.
• “The main action of ‘Trainwreck’ is a zany conversation between a railroad brakeman who has just caused a trainwreck and a railroad official. . . . The play won first prize in the Drury College 1993 One-Act Play Contest.”
