The Last CarburetorRead the Offoffoff review
Twenty years ago, displaced steelworker Doug crashed his prized possession, a souped-up 1970 Plymouth Hemi Barracuda. The wrecked remains have sat untouched in his garage ever since, one of the many things that he refuses to talk about. For Doug's underachieving, gun-toting son Josh, the car has been a lifelong obsession the dream project that his father could never trust him enough to work on. Josh's idealistic sister Ayla, on the other hand, equates the car with virtually everything that's wrong with the world, and especially, her family. Long suppressed tensions begin to emerge for the entire family when long lost genius brother Keith, recovering from a nervous breakdown, arrives and attempts the unthinkable: he begins to "mess around" with the car in the hopes of getting it to run again.
Heading up the cast is critically acclaimed actress Susan O'Connor, best known for her work in off-Broadway's "Never Swim Alone." Ms. O'Connor's other credits include "See Bob Run" at the Rattlestick Theatre, and most recently "Take," which garnered her the Best Actor Award in this year's New York International Fringe Festival. Rounding out the ensemble are Tara Gibson, Jeremy Schwartz, Howard Taylor, Rodney R. To and Paul Witte.
Playwright Leon Chase grew up in Detriot's decidedly unscenic industrial suburbs. In the years since then, he has crisscrossed the country, working variously as a subway musician, carpenter, Halloween mask maker, UPS man, houseboy, and punk rock roadie, just to name a few. He has also managed to snag a writing degree from Eastern Michigan University, and win second place in the San Francisco Bay Guardian'
