Synopsis: Forty-something Becky Foster has a decent job at an auto dealership, a solid husband, and a freeloading psych-major son living in her basement. Her life is pleasant enough, but through a twist of fate, Becky gets to test drive an exciting new life. Dietz has written a frothy, poignant and fresh new comedy — a perfect side trip from the daily woes of modern life. "Becky's New Car takes the audience on a smart, comic cruise through the perils of middle-aged longing..." – Variety
