Publisher's Summary

Balmy evenings in rural Maryland are fraught with danger, and seductions can happen anywhere from a river bank to the front seat of a car, where a young self-conscious girl is learning to drive. To Li'l Bit, the radio is the most important part of the car, but the pop music of the 50's can never quite drown out the harrowing images in her mind.

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Randall Arney, Joy Gregory, Glenne Headly, Paul Mercier and Rondi Reed.

Censored version!

I'm a fan of the LA Theatre Works audio productions, but I was really disappointed with this one. It is censored for some reason. It is not that the performance omitted any scenes or parts, but it is that there are actual bleeps added over certain words! It only happens a few times, but it really pulled me out of the play. Is this a radio friendly, edited version they've simply thrown up on Audible? I'm not sure, but I have never had this experience with any other work here. Sadly, I'll probably end up returning this.

Engaging. Provocative. Comical

A great play. So well structured. Captures a certain time and the innocence and longing and search for understanding by a complicated, confused boozing uncle who was also desperate for understanding. I wish that Uncle Peck sounded more Southern. He did not sound south carolinian.

Censored Version

This was a very good and very dark play. It had wonderful performances. But my only complaint is that it is censored in some parts. Not a lot but there are just enough bleeps that it does take the listener out of the story I can’t really fault the play for that so my rating won’t reflect my complaint. Having said that they shouldn’t ever censor any form of art.

Too perky for a serious topic

The light tone and easy delivery was a little too upbeat for what was a very disturbing story. This may work for some, but for me, it was too big a disconnect to be enjoyable.

Felt sad the adults in the room didn't intervene.

Feel sad that the adults in the room didn't intervene. Seems that this story represents much that is occurring in society today. We need to wake up.
