The Unexpected Man is a middle-age romance, poignant yet funny, set on a night train from Paris to Frankfurt. Two passengers, two strangers, two worlds apart. The man, a writer, struggling with his growing bitterness with people, and the woman, recovering from the death of her dearest friend, whose only consolation is the man’s books. Will they find the connection they want? With a minimalist set design, and a dynamic sound and light design that brings the train, the journey and the inner worlds of the characters alive, the characters find themselves on a trip that could change their lives.
