Becky Foster is caught in a middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage with no prospect for change on the horizon. Then one night a socially inept and grief-stricken millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life. Becky's New Car is an original comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken. It's a screwball comedy that gives way to a disarmingly thoughtful drama about the nature of love, fidelity and second chances. It breaks the theater's 4th wall, volunteers will come onstage to repair the roof, fix the faucet, and advise Becky. Patrick Brafford is the director.
