It’s 1924. Rose disappears from a train wreck without a trace. Twenty-five years later her red suitcase arrives anonymously and mysteriously, triggering her daughter’s search for the truth and unlocking a bizarre chain of events. A haunted railway detective, gourmet gangster-chefs, a Puccini-singing ghost, and a host of Dickensian characters populate Vancouver’s underbelly. Wreckage is a stylish ‘gangster’ play with a dark and wicked sense of humour and the theatrical punch of a speeding train.
