Becky’s New Car

Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life? Becky Foster is caught in middle age, middle management, and 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. BECKY’S NEW CAR is a thoroughly original comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken.

When a woman says she needs new shoes, what she really wants is a new job.
When a woman says she needs a new house, she needs a new husband.
When she says she wants a new car, she wants a new life.
