The Last Truck Stop
[Dallas, TX] Crystal Jackson used to write dark, absurd comedies. Then the world became dark and absurd (but not very funny) so she took a break from playwriting to regroup. Jackson moved across the country a couple of times. And she went on a lot of hikes, road trips and burger quests.
With her new play “The Last Truck Stop,” she again considers what might be waiting for us in our near future, only this time there’s a glimmer of hope.
Because if we don’t have hope, what’s the point?
A tenacious trucker-turned-truck-stop-owner and her poetic, gun-toting postal carrier debate staying or going when their desert town is declared a no-go zone.
Should they trust the colorful stranger who arrives with a story they desperately want to believe?
In association with National New Play Network’s marvelous New Play Exchange, Kitchen Dog Theater‘s 2023 New Works Festival in Dallas will include the world-premiere production of “The Last Truck Stop,” Jun. 8-25, 2023.
