Pacific Resident Theatre presents
The Los Angeles Premiere of

Becky’s New Car

Written by Steven Dietz | Directed by Michael Rothhaar

In the Los Angeles Premiere of Becky’s New Car, playwright Steven Dietz maps out a very funny and touching trip about “the life not taken.” Becky is married, late 40’s and working at a car dealership. When one night, by chance, she’s offered an opportunity to step into another life — she takes it. Becky’s New Car is about life, love, marriage and the detours we make on the way to happiness.

“…Wonderful” “…Riotous” “…Delightful”
“Splendid!” “…emulates 1930’s screwball comedies.”

LA Weekly
“It’s hard to imagine a better acted or directed production
than Becky’s New Car now gracing the PRT Stage.”
“Genuinely Funny”

“Fresh off three LADCC Awards for their production of
 Terence Rattigan’s 1948, The Browning Version,
Pacific Resident Theatre’s decision to go modern with
the Southern California premiere of Steven Dietz’s 
Becky’s New Car is a savvy one, and one that
could easily lead to more award nominations.”
