    When the Clampett family unexpectedly strikes it rich, they move from the Ozarks to Beverly Hills. Suddenly 17-year-old Elly May, a beautiful but naïve tomboy, is thrown into a world of debutante balls, polo matches and people mainly concerned with their place in society. Nearly taken in by a couple of scheming ne’er-do-wells, Elly proves traditional country virtue triumphs over slick city vice.

    This play takes on society's innate fear of the unknown through vignettes that humorously illustrate the lengths to which people will go in order to avoid the latest threat to their health, whether it is real or imagined. The concept of a manufactured health crisis is the perfect vehicle to illustrate our cultural gullibility when it comes to medicine, disease and our predisposition for panic and irrational reaction when it comes to our well-being.

    Sisters Bonnie and Claire have spent their lives estranged. After 45 years, their parents now gone, Claire is forced to move back home with Bonnie, who bitterly resents the intrusion while denying the evidence of her own decline. The sisters' young niece, Zoe, tries to help them while urging reconciliation, but there's a lot of stubborn history blocking the road. With most of the action taking place in cars, this play is a literal journey through the practicalities and the pitfalls of aging, agency and admitting when we need someone. Learn More
