In a Railway Station on the Western Plains by Ruth Draper
Famed monologist, Ruth Draper, evokes a woman working the late shift at a small town railway station who is going about
her quotidian duties when a call comes through that a train has crashed,
resulting in many casualties. While she sets up the station as a makeshift
emergency ward, she awaits word of Jerry, her fiance and the engineer of the
wrecked train. During her lifetime, "Railway Station" was a popular "monodrama" favorite
with Draper's audiences.
