Full-Length Play | Winner of the 2019 SETC/Stage Rights Ready To Publish Award | Camaro Gibson loves only three things in this life: strawberry glazed donuts, her daddy, and Route 66. Born and raised on the Southside of Chicago, Camaro keeps her daddy’s heart in their family’s repair shop: a 1967 Chevy Camaro engine.

- CAMARO GIBSON: Female, late 30's any race or ethnicity. Camaro loves three things in this life: strawberry glazed donuts from Dunkin Donuts, her daddy, and his 1967 Chevy Camaro. She got an engine for a heart and oil for blood. Don’t try to change her. Stubborn as all Hell, just like her daddy.
- LUCY “LUCKY” WELLS: Female, late 20's, any race or ethnicity. Sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps. Confident cause she knows her shit, but still “lost” in the way every twenty-something is lost. You give her an inch, she’ll take hundred miles cause she is just that good.
- ASTON GIBSON: Female, mid 30's, any race or ethnicity. Camaro’s cousin on government papers, but to the family (where it counts) they are sisters. Aston is a night shift RN and taking classes to become a nurse practitioner. Used to be a wild child when she was younger, still is at heart. She got a mouth and a temper that goes from 0 to 60 in three seconds flat.
