June needs to go on a journey so she convinces three friends to join her on a road trip through the American west. A funny and poetic play about tumbleweed, friendship, being black, and needing to soothe something you don’t always have the words for. CTC is thrilled to welcome Charly Evon Simpson (Jump, NPW 2018) back to workshop her latest play before it premieres at Round House Theatre in Maryland in spring 2021.
