Becky’s New Car
by Steven Dietz
Directed by Maria Provenzano
Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life? Becky Foster is caught in middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage—with no prospects for change on the horizon. Then one night a socially inept and grief-struck millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life…and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun in a way that most plays wouldn’t dare. BECKY’S NEW CAR is a thoroughly original comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken.
BECKY FOSTER (Female, mid-40’s to mid-50’s) Charming, funny, attractive, she is caught in an exhaustive lifestyle, balancing demands of work/life balance, generally light-hearted character with spirit and played with some cheekiness, looks to escape her current life. Central to the ensemble and drives the show. She has multiple interactive fourth wall breaking monologues.
JOE FOSTER (Male, mid-40’s to mid-50’s) Becky’s husband. Strong, pragmatic, loves his wife and family, and is significantly smarter than he gives himself credit for.
WALTER FLOOD (Male, mid-40’s - 60) A wealthy businessman. Gentle, sweet, good hearted, and not terribly connected to the real world. Has been lost since his wife’s death.
CHRIS FOSTER (Male, mid-20’s) Joe and Becky’s son. A college psychology major; intelligent and self-possessed.
KENSINGTON (KENNI) FLOOD) (Female, early to mid-20’s) Rich, cynical, brilliant. Walter’s daughter, and is dating Chris.
STEVE (Male, 40 to mid-50’s) Becky’s coworker. Still grieving the loss of his wife.
GINGER (Female, (40 to mid-50’s) Walter’s neighbor; funny, and smart
