Paul is an academic-turned-taxi driver, trying to reconnect with society through the relationships that cycle in and out of his cab. Anne is an Ob/Gyn still haunted by her transcendental experiences in Afghanistan. Damon is a green beret confronted with a crack in his reality. The three trajectories intertwine and merge as they drive towards Coldwater Canyon. This thought-provoking play teases out the surreal in our lives, while delivering a macabre, mordant, and mystifying story.
