EIGHT LONE TRAVELERS journey the back roads and Interstates through the American night, grappling with their most secret thoughts in the dark as they escape their pasts and drive towards the terrifying uncertainty at the end of the road. Mysterious connections, dangerous dislocations and life-altering encounters shape this meditation on the myth of individualism on the American road. One Act, With Songs, 100 Minutes
