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. In the hilarious, hard-fought contest that is Hands on a Hardbody only one winner can drive away with the American Dream. A story made most impactful by our recent economic tumult that has brought age-old fissures of race, class and income inequality to the fore. “You can hear the sound of America singing in this daring new musical” – The New York Times. “Hands down it’s musical theatre heaven!” – New York Magazine. Springfield area premiere. This show contains adult content.
