Overview

On a rainy Texas night, a cabbie commits hit-and-run. Though they try to forget it happened, guilt draws the driver and his passenger together and seven lives change forever. The well-drawn characters include a lesbian airline employee, a doctor with the bedside manner of a mannequin, a waitress who always carries a burn kit - just in case, a single father whose only happiness hovers near death, a high-strung business woman, an ex-con terrified of Texas justice and a street magician whose verbal contortions hide a thirty-year battle to rectify his past. This is a play about Dallas, love, fate, majic and peach pie.
