Hellcab is a seventy-minute collection of scenes from a day in the life of a Chicago cabbie

Beginning with a 6:30 a.m. trip by a born-again couplethe cabbie's long day's journey proceeds with fares from, among many others, a dangerous trio of druggies, a piggish mini-capitalist, a benumbed rape victim, an argumentative pair of fellow cabbies, a drunken woman on welfare, a smug lawyer, a randy couple on the way to a motel, and two boisterous New Yorkers out on the town

Alternately frightening, hilarious and poignant, these sharply etched blackouts and cameos are capped by a stunning and very touching final scene

Despite rough language and some truly nasty bits, the play is a joyous and spirited choice for the Christmas season

"Hellcab [is] a real joy ride" ~ Chicago Tribune
