A Tribute to Thick Leonard
- by Gilbert Tanner
- directed by Shade Murray
Rita, a former roller derby queen and ex-leader of an all-female Thin Lizzy tribute band, tries to save the last chance Irish pub she owns from going under. When her niece Molly returns from serving in Iraq, Rita hatches a quixotic plan to turn Rita’s pub into the “entertainment capital of Central Florida.” A Tribute to Thick Leonard is a hilarious rock-and-roll derby dark comedy- a southern gothic Three Sisters about crazy American dreams.
