Someone will win a new truck… and a new lease on life…
With a beautiful score, featuring music by Grammy-nominated recording artist Trey Anastasio and Amanda Green, and a touching book by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Doug Wright (I am My Own Wife), Hands on a Hardbody strikes a fresh note for American Musical Theatre and for Park Playhouse. Ten people place their hands on a brand new pickup truck. The last one to hold on, wins. Sounds crazy, but this exciting new musical is based on real life! Hands on a Hardbody is based on the award-winning documentary of the same name. This moving and exhilarating new musical is sure to delight audiences in July, 2014 in Washington Park!

Author’s Note: Despite their colorful eccentricities and regional turns of phrase, the characters in our story are inspired by very real people. They should not be played broadly, or with an implied “wink.” Rather, they should be acted with integrity, with full regard for their ardent hopes, heart-breaking foibles and core decency.
