Hands on a Hardbody




A new musical based on the 1997 documentary of the same name.


Story:

For ten 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.
