The Last Carburetor, the first play by Leon Chase, is receiving a run at the Access Theatre Off Broadway until July 17. The show began July 1 under the direction of Susanna L. Harris.
The protagonist, Keith, is a former Silicon Valley success who has so fallen on hard times that he ends up in a ditch outside his family's Detroit-area home. His father is distant, his brother bitter and his sister disgruntled. Nonetheless, he relies on these people to help him get back on his feet—that is, until everything goes wrong.
The cast includes Susan O'Connor ( See Bob Run), Wilbur Edwin Henry, Paul Witte, Jeremy Schwartz, Lethia Nall, and Timothy Ford Murphy.
The play is a venture of Overlap Productions, a company founded in 2000 by Susanna L. Harris and Tania I. Kirkman.
Tickets are $15. Access Theatre is located at 380 Broadway at White St. For reservations and information please call (212) 330-9380. —By Robert Simonson
