Becky’s husband is a roofer, her adult son lives in the basement, and her job at the car dealership takes up too much of her time. In Steven Dietz’s surprisingly interactive play, the audience becomes the confidante of a woman facing a mid-life crisis arriving in the form of an attractive older man who buys multiple cars at a time. Assumptions are made, details not fully communicated, and events become chaotic, comic, and serious at the same time. Dietz writes engagingly complex characters; each a gem of humanity textured with absurdity.

Rehearsals begin January 15th and will generally be Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings (some flexibility for actors’ schedules). Tech rehearsal is Saturday February 18th, and opening night is February 24th. The performances run Friday and Saturday nights with Sunday matinees through March 5th at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center in West Seattle.
