Area Stage Company is proud to present RIDE, a cross country adventure, by playwright Eric Lane. This poignant and hilarious play takes three adolescent girls—Molly, Carrie, and Sam—on a life-changing road trip.
Recent high school graduates Carrie and Molly, who are complete opposites and never hung out together at school, form a fragile relationship while working at a local farm stand. Molly convinces Carrie to join her on an unexpected road trip in her brand new car—a gift with strings attached. Carrie brings along her eleven-year-old sister, Sam, who ends up creating a bridge the older girls needed. All three are keeping secrets, which unfold over the course of their trip, and the girls' true selves begin to emerge. Their ride is both a physical and emotional one.
“There is only one word to describe the play, ‘Ride’ … brilliant. Every single aspect of the play is pitch perfect … [an] incredibly witty and heartfelt script.” —Cape Cod Times
"Eric Lane has written a beautiful, powerful play about love, loss, obligation, friendship and family. Each character's dialogue is absolutely on target, modern, honest, authentic, warm and humorous." —Cape Cod Chronicle
