WHAT HAPPENED IN OHIO, an original work from writer and director Cara Scarmack and ensemble The Roadsters


Set in 1950's rural America, the play is a fierce telling of four siblings whose lives are caught dead in their tracks by a fatal automobile accident. Staged with wild imagination, the show is a gutsy meditation on loss and a look into how we pass things on. 


In WHAT HAPPENED IN OHIO, The Roadsters have created their world through the use of old-timey poetic text, a meticulous physical landscape, and joyously transcendent original music.  The intersecting of these elements creates an alive, immediate, and intimate performance experience.  The story is here and now, and way back then, too.
