Corvettes and Rt. 66. Bus and truck tours of Broadway musicals. Summers spent in the back seats of station wagons--"Are we there yet?" The road has inspired writers for years, from the first pioneers to open the American West to Kerouac, and now more than twenty playwrights offer their visions of the voices of the road.

Theatre people travel a lot. We know what it's like to be on the road. And we know the voices that can come from the road. These monologues are a stunning evocation of this country's fascination with two or four wheels and the blacktop. From Michael Wright's manic motorcyclist taking on the streets of Manhattan, to Steve Feffer's McDonald's girl wanting to head west to join a rock band, to Gay Davidson-Zielske's coffin-haulin' mama, these are authentic tarmac voices.

These stage-tested monologues make perfect audition pieces or, taken together, a moving night of theatre that will really rev up audiences.
