Becky's New Car, a play by Steven Dietz

Beth Anne Austein talks with Linda Grinde, director of the Whitefish Theater Company's upcoming production of "Becky's New Car."

"Becky's New Car" by Steven Dietz "takes the audience on a smart, comic cruise through the perils of middle-aged longing and regret" - Variety. 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. "A thoroughly original comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken." - Dramatists.
