The Laboratory Theater of Florida will present an audio-visual hybrid film and stage production of Nancy Stetson’s Rest Stops of America.

With theaters around the world dark to help curb the spread of the global pandemic, artists are anxious to get back to performing. The theater has instituted a rigorous pandemic protocol. This protocol incorporates a quarantine model for staff, crew, and cast,  which includes but is not limited to isolation, temp checks upon arrival, masks for everyone not on stage (limited to one actor at a time), frequent handwashing, and buckets of hand sanitizer. 

This is a beautiful story of sisters Ruby and Pearl, who are on a very special road trip. Along the way, they explore their relationship: the bonds that hold them together and the secrets that might keep them apart. 

This production features real life sisters Cindi Heimberg (Ruby) and Stacy Peres (Pearl) and Mike Dinko (Roy). The play is directed by Annette Trossbach. 

Three virtual performances will be available – Saturday, Oct. 17 at 8 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 25 at 2 p.m. and Friday, Oct. 30 at 8 p.m.

Digital passes are $15 and available by calling the box office at 239-218-0481 or online at

This is an audiovisual recording and is only viewable online. Your digital pass is good for one viewing for the date chosen. The viewing of the video must be started and completed within 24 hours.  

This production was filmed under socially safe conditions based on strict adherence to our pandemic protocol. Details on this protocol are available on their website.
