You’re invited.

It’s 2038 and tech-giant Edison is set to introduce a line of self-driving trucks. The vehicles will make ninety-nine percent of long-haul trucking autonomous, putting thousands out of work. Tonight, you’re invited to a retirement speech for the last truck driver in America.

Presented as a staged reading, TRUCK is a new play about technology, work, and the challenges of the near future.

Written by Graham Isador (GQ, The Beaverton) with performances by Adam Lazarus (Daughter), Tim Walker (White Heat), and Ellie Moon (Adult Adoption).
