BECKY’S NEW CAR by Steven Dietz
directed by Betty Abramson
Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life?
Restless, married, and middle-aged, Becky is an office-manager of a small car dealershipwho experiences a complicated mid-life crisis when a handsome millionaire arrives to buy a large number of cars as gifts for his employees.
“On a classic mistaken-identity premise, playwright Steven Dietz has constructed a warmly humorous and nimble romantic farce that doesn’t oversell itself, or ever sell its American Everywoman protagonist short. Dietz has created a comedy of modern manners…one that derives as much power from its humanity as its fine-tuned craftsmanship.” —Seattle Times.
“Becky’s New Car is that perfect blend of hilarious comedy and substantial weight, a story about choices and consequences that could believably happen to anyone.” —Broadway Hour.
