By Charles L. Mee

Directed by Kimberly Senior

A wild road trip through our American landscape—in a play made as one of America’s greatest artists, Robert
Rauschenberg, might have conceived it if he had been a playwright instead of a painter: a collage of people and places and music
and dancing, of love stories and picnics and business schemes and shootings and chicken jokes and golfing, and of the sheer exhilaration of living in a country where people make up their lives as they go.

Tickets: $15; Seniors: $6; Students: $6; Military: $6 (General Admission)
