Car Pool
Paul Green Award

"Don't Miss This Car Pool!" —The Westsider
By Laura Hembree.

Cast: 5m. Car Pool examines with sympathy, criticism and humor the fragile nature of the American Dream as it explores the lives of five middle-management employees commuting to and from work in the course of six months. The men work for a conglomerate, have homes in the suburbs and fear for their jobs. After overstating year-end losses, their company announces major restructuring suddenly threatening the job security, future and even identity of each member of the car pool. The five men find themselves trapped in jobs they only half want but are afraid to lose. Within the sanctuary of the car, the men begin questioning the values that sustained them their entire lives while struggling to maintain their dignity in the face of it all. For this play, Hembree won the Paul Green Award, a national award that distinguishes outstanding new artists in the American theatre. Single unit set. Approximate Running Time: 90 minutes.
