Description

Pacific Resident Theatre Presents the Southern California Premiere of Steven Dietz’s Comedy

Playwright Steven Dietz maps out a very funny and touching trip about “the life not taken.”  Becky is married, in her late 40s and working at a car dealership.  When, one night, by chance, she’s offered an opportunity to step into another life — she takes it.  _Becky’s New Car _is about life, love, marriage and the detours we take on the way to happiness.  Directed by Michael Rothhaar, the cast includes Joanna Daniels, Suzanne Ford, Jon Eric Preston, Nick Rogers, Brad Greenquist, Christopher Shaw and Jules Wilcox.
