Playwrights 6 and Open Fist Theatre Company are proud to present the world premiere of Drive, which tells the story of an ambitious woman who is involved in a near-fatal car accident and her attempts to piece together what actually occurred and the life-changing aftermath. Part tragedy, part comedy, part jarring dream, Drive examines the themes of deconstructions and reconstruction, denial, guilt and, ultimately, forgiveness. The play—told in a surreal, jarring fashion—is written and directed by Laura Black and stars Jane Hajduk, Beth Robbins, Susan Sommer, Barry Saltzman, AlgeRita Wynn, Allison Mattox, Coronado Romero and Joseph Beck.
