Hands on a Hardbody
Book by Doug Wright
Music by Trey Anastasio & Amanda Green
Lyrics by Amanda Green
Nominated for three Tony Awards, including Best Original Score, 2013! Inspired by true events, and infused with a “fresh roots-rock vibe,” this is the hilarious, hard-fought contest where only one winner can drive away with the American dream. Ten contestants. Four days. One truck.
For 10 hard-luck Texans, a new lease on life is so close they can touch it. Under a scorching sun for days on end, armed with nothing but hope, humor, and ambition, they’ll fight to keep at least one hand on a brand-new truck in order to win it. In the hilarious, hard-fought contest that is Hands on a Hardbody, only one winner can drive away with the American dream. Inspired by the true events of the acclaimed 1997 documentary of the same name.
