“The story has, at its center, a love triangle between an agoraphobe, a highway toll collector & an exotic dancer with an unhinged ex-boyfriend. A Greek-chorus-esque trio of trailer park women helps guide the narrative, playing any character/gender they choose while breaking the fourth wall at whim to air their own dirty laundry. The result, a sense of informality & community–the lifeblood of neighborhoods everywhere.”
 *Adult language is used during the show.
