Book by Doug Wright | Music by Trey Anastasio & Amanda Green | Lyrics by Amanda Green

Nominated for three Tony Awards, including Best Original Score, 2013! Inspired by true events, and infused with a “fresh roots-rock vibe,” this is the hilarious, hard-fought contest where only one winner can drive away with the American dream. Ten contestants. Four days. One truck.

For 10 hard-luck Texans, a new lease on life is so close they can touch it. Under a scorching sun for days on end, armed with nothing but hope, humor, and ambition, they’ll fight to keep at least one hand on a brand-new truck in order to win it. Only one winner can drive away with the American dream. Inspired by the true events of the acclaimed 1997 documentary of the same name.

Recommended for ages 14+
