Artist Statement

The tale of two travelers stranded on a desolate highway after an accident has disabled their vehicle. Sally tries to hang onto the hope that she will escape the highway she has landed beside. Frustrating her hopes considerably are the ramblings and repeated power naps of her concussed boyfriend, Tarry. When a third character enters the scene, the plot takes an interesting twist. A “wrecked vehicle” is part of the set design for “Thunder Road” and is an important plot element.
