At the crossroads of a young nation In the world-premiere commission by OSF’s American Revolutions written by acclaimed playwright Idris Goodwin and directed by May Adrales (Vietgone), this powerful journey into the genesis of the Transcontinental Railroad explores the often untold perspectives on an iconic chapter in American History and the events that shaped the country’s moral and environmental future. In a remote desert in the 1850s, four men—a U.S. Army lieutenant, a sharpshooter, a botanist and an artist—set out to survey a route for the new continent-spanning railroad. After being scattered on separate odysseys, they cross paths with lost pioneers, cautious Native Americans, and an African-American Mormon couple unsure whether to befriend, fight or flee the newcomers. Whose dreams will prevail? This play joins All The Way, Roe, Sweat and other American Revolutions commissions that explore key moments of change in U.S. history. Development of The Way the Mountain Moved was supported by grants from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust. #WayTheMountainMovedOSF
