Enervating Sloth

An adaptation of the short play "The Wreck on the 5:25" by American Pulitzer winner novelist and playwright Thornton Wilder is to go on stage at City Theater on June 11. 
The play is about Herbert Hawkins who commutes to work on the same train every day. At first, the Hawkins family seems stereotypically slothful because of the wrenching boredom of their lives, discussing their daily chores, and unwilling to take risks. But later it is revealed that there is a more enervating sloth in the family leaning on destruction.
