The Civic

  • by Patrick B. McLean
  • directed by Sandy Shinner
  • A rite of passage story set in Chicago, Indianapolis, and the stretch of I-65 linking the two, The Civic follows one young woman’s journey from her rocky past into the complications of adulthood. When Cassie’s beat-up car breaks down in the middle of nowhere, a kind stranger serves as a surprising catalyst for change in her life. The world-premiere of McLean’s new play is a lonely yet heartfelt tale of the open road.
