A NATIONAL NEW PLAY NETWORK ROLLING WORLD PREMIERE. Jim Starkey’s American Dream is a modest one: to replace the family’s doublewide trailer with a comfy house his daughter can inherit.
His family’s aspirations, though, may be shaped by forces and desires beyond his control. Doublewide is a heartfelt and resonant comedy about a blue-collar family’s elusive dreams, and just how far they will go to hold on to them... and to each other.
A slice of real-life humor
