Play was great, thought provoking, interesting, and insightful. Actors were wonderful, direction spot on. So happy I didn't pass on this play.

This is a terrific evening at the theater. Sharp characters. Clever, clever plot. Humor. Some nice twists. And wonderful direction.

Drive was so engrossing and entertaining. You really have to pay attention and it is well worth the effort. What a thought-provoking piece. The cast was flawless, the directing tight and the story has something everyone can relate to in some way....continued

Description

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.
