Becky’s New Car
by Steven Dietz
Directed by Susan Stangl
Produced by Larry Jones
January 10 – February 15, 2014
Becky’s New Car is a thoroughly original and contemporary comedy about love, loss, choices and what makes life worth living, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken. Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life? Becky Foster is caught in middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage—with no prospects for change on the horizon. Then one night a socially inept and grief-struck millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life…and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun in a way that most plays wouldn’t dare.
