While the theatre facility remains closed, the virtual production of Becky’s’ New Car continues now through May 31. And don’t forget to order your special pre-show to-go dinner from Ocean Prime or Truluck’s!
Have you ever been tempted to flee your own life? Becky Foster is caught in middle age, middle management and in a middling marriage—with no prospects for change on the horizon. Then one night a socially inept and grief-struck millionaire stumbles into the car dealership where Becky works. Becky is offered nothing short of a new life…and the audience is offered a chance to ride shotgun in a way that most plays wouldn’t dare. Becky’s New Car is a thoroughly original comedy with serious overtones, a devious and delightful romp down the road not taken.
The Naples Players is one of the first companies in the country – and the first in the region – to produce a full virtual production after the COVID-19 closure began. We’re excited to embrace the digital format not as a replacement for live theatre – and not even as a recording of live theatre – but as its own new medium to help tell the compelling stories you would have seen on stage.
Performances will be held virtually – ticket buyers will have links emailed to them to watch the performance from home. For tickets, visit https://naplesplayers.org/show/beckys-new-car/
