In this world premiere solo comedy, a NYC cabbie must come to terms with his past, his dad, and his unfinished college degree. Written and performed by Emmy-winning 'Late Night with David Letterman' writer Ted Greenberg. More…
It's December 18, 1987. Ted is driving a NYC taxi with one screaming deadline in front of him: He must turn in a paper by midnight or his long-cherished, degree-pending status at Harvard will be snatched away forever. It will take a wild ride through NYC and his past, and a confrontation with his financial-titan father before Ted’s able to come to grips with an eight-to-ten-pager on Edmund Spenser’s 'The Fairie Queene.'
