It’s Jan’s retirement flight. Everyone knows, except for Greig, Jan’s best friend and coworker of many years. As Greig waxes nostalgic, Jan worries about life post-retirement. LeeAnne, a klutzy newbie flight attendant with a dark past, must avoid her ex on the plane while Captain, a waggish pilot with a weakness for unlimited Bloody Mary Brunches, is caught in a love triangle. Erik, the co-pilot with a heart of gold, can’t get a word in edgewise. Presiding over the flight is Mark Twain, of course.
In a comedy set on everyone’s least favorite mode of transit, we must reckon with our crew’s dreams and regrets and ask ourselves: What does it take to really start living?
Featuring Ceci Fernandez, Federico Rodriguez, Greig Sargeant, Barbara Walsh, Sam Breslin Wright and a special appearance of Eliza Bent as Mark Twain

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.
About the Company: The Roadsters
The Roadsters are theatre practitioners Priscilla Holbrook, Ashley Nease, Cara Scarmack,
Stephanie Viola, and Nathan Richard Wagner. They convene on a regular basis to practice a bigger
way of living and to deepen their understanding of humanity.
