Comedy Character Study Student Directors Vignettes

"Everybody should take a road trip. How do you know where you are if you don't know where you're from?"

Drive across country to change your life when you've never actually driven farther than the next block.

Drive all night for one last fling at the beach. And get completely, totally lost.

Drive your obnoxious brother and your doubly obnoxious sister because... because Mom said!

The road trip. Ever take one? Ever want to? Ever spent hours trapped in a car with your obnoxious brother eating double double burgers and your doubly obnoxious sister whining, "Are we there yet?" Who let those two in the car?!

Let these characters make that road trip for you. Join their journey and see where the road takes them. Are they driving as far away as possible, just to find their way home?

This is a vignette play! What is a Vignette Play?
