Mildred's Umbrella Theatre Company presents Becky's New Car
Mildred’s Umbrella Theatre Company continues its 2015-2016 season with Steven Dietz's Becky's New Car, directed by Ron Jones, and featuring Celeste Roberts as Becky.
With just the right mix of pathos and whimsy to shake off those post-holiday blues, Becky's New Car is a disarmingly thoughtful drama about the nature of love, fidelity, and second chances hidden inside a hilarious screwball comedy. The play follows Becky Foster, a middle aged woman stuck in a rut at her middle management job until one night when a grieving millionaire happens into the car dealership where she works and offers her a chance at a wild ride into a new life.
Dietz’s engaging humor and poignant writing spur on Becky’s journey to find purpose in her life and encourages audiences to think about their own ‘why’ in life.
