Circle Theatre’s Season Continues in July With Lively Comedy
Circle Theatre continues the 2015 season in July with the comedy BECKY’S NEW CAR by Steven Dietz, running July 9-25.
In this lively comedy, Becky Foster is caught in middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage—with no prospects for change on the horizon. Then one night a socially inept and grief-struck millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life…and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun in a way that most plays wouldn't dare. BECKY'S NEW CAR is a thoroughly original comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken.
"Perhaps the highest praise that can be given to Steven Dietz's praiseworthy new comedy is that it's funny. Not ironic. Not hysterical in a slapsticky kind of way. Just gently and consistently funny—right up to the point that it's touching, and then even a little bit after that. BECKY'S NEW CAR takes the audience on a smart, comic cruise through the perils of middle-aged longing and regret." —Variety.
The cast of Becky’s New Car features Amy McFadden as Becky Foster, Jon Clausen as Joe Foster, Ben Avery as Chris Foster, Todd Lewis as Walter Flood, Kendra Jones as Kensington Flood, Greg Rogers as Steve and Teri Kuhlman as Ginger.
