Nick Stabile stars in "The Trip Back Down"

Rare revival of John Bishop’s Broadway drama about a once-great NASCAR racer
SHERMAN OAKS, Calif. - Jan. 21, 2014 - PRLog -- Groupies, trophies and fast, beautiful cars. Is winning all there is? Nick Stabile (Bride of Chucky, Dennis Wilson in ABC’s award-winning TV movie The Beach Boys: An American Family) stars as once-great NASCAR racer Bobby Horvath in a rare revival of the celebrated Broadway drama that kick-started playwright/screenwriter John Bishop’s career. After a near-miss crash-and-burn race on the circuit, past and present collide when Bobby returns home to the small Midwestern town he abandoned for racing.

“Bobby needed courage to leave Mansfield to pursue a racing career, and now he needs to find the courage to come back – to face the friends and family he abandoned, to face living, to face himself,” explains director Terri Hanauer. “It’s as if he’s racing for his life. His memories rush at him like cars racing by. Everything that happens is either ‘fuel’ or a ‘pit stop.’ He needs to get his life in focus, to get to the finish line.”

“Not many people in L.A. know about this play because it hasn’t been done here since 1998,” says Stabile. “It’s a classic, a great piece.”

The Trip Back Down opens on Friday, Feb. 21 continuing through March 29 on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. Preview performances take place Feb. 13-20 on the same schedule. General admission is $25; full-time students with ID are $15; previews are $15. The Whitefire Theatreis located at 13500 Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks, CA 91423.
