Jack Benson and Walter Zimmerman interpret Mark Twain’s 1868 short story “Cannibalism in the Cars” in vibrant manner. In this satire of the American political system, two strangers meet on a train. One man relates a story that happened some years earlier. During a snowstorm, a group of 24 men are trapped on a train bound for Chicago. As their situation turns desperate, they resort to cannibalism to sate their hunger. The killings are carried out in a democratic fashion. Nominations are followed by lively debate, and then an election takes place. Is this a vile memory, or the zany musings of a madman?
