"A wild cross-country road trip that's got a huge heart and a refreshing sense of imagination and optimism." -John M. Baker "A radically charged coming-of-age story as whimsical and fun as it is moving and deep." -- Lori Wolter Hudson. Two Seattle teenagers embark on an impulsive motorcycle journey to join a group of oil protesters on the east coast. But as they follow a major pipeline across the country, what began as two young activists' longing to belong to something greater than themselves gives way to Rain and Zoe discovering that the true danger in this world might just be growing up.

    A quirky, and inventive odyssey of a play. As Rain and Zoe travel across the country meeting an eclectic group of people and battling their inner demons, we really get a sense of who they are and why these kids would make their journey.
    Fun and interesting staging keeps the play moving, a great example of how to visually do a roadtrip story on stage.

    What a ride. You know those rare plays that come along and just transcend your idea of what a play can be? This play will do that. I am feeling SO INSPIRED AND CREATIVE AND I WANT TO SHOUT IT TO THE WORLD! Stop what you're doing right now, and hop on the motorcycle with Rain and Zoe!

    A play that feels most huge and also incredibly intimate. There's also a beautiful blend of magic and simplicity that is riveting and hugely affecting. It fully embraces what theatre does best and touches the heart and the mind and the soul...a beautiful and exciting piece.
