PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Darla Frye’s life is on the skids. Her mother is dead, her delusional, dog-catching
boyfriend is only interested in her fried chicken, and her job stocking auto parts at the Big
Mart Distribution Center is going nowhere fast. All this, combined with the fact that
Darla’s father abandoned the family “twenty-six years ago next Wednesday”, has left her
“fraught with deep-seated insecurities.” Then one night, on a dark deserted country road,
a woman named Lucky Tibbs teaches Darla how to change a flat tire – and in doing so,
change her life. Now Darla is on a quest to find her true “destiny”, a journey that takes
her into the inner world of stock car racing and includes an unexpected friendship with a
gay professor, a head-on collision with a car battery, and a heavenly visit
with the late Dale Earnhardt. It’s one helluva ride with a lot of “tradin’ paint” but Darla
discovers that it’s the bump in the road that makes the trip worthwhile…

3.5
Tradin' Paint tells a couple of stories in one small amount of time.

The Pumphouse Players give this production it's just due, with just a few kinks in the armor.
The racetrack set was funny and effective. And having the racers go by in office chairs was cute.
3.5 out of 5.0 [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
