Don Fox Designs LLC, Jaime Donegan Productions, and the Numerica PAC present a 2019 Hot August Nights production inspired by true events: Hands On A Hardbody by Doug Wright, Amanda Green, and Trey Anastasio.
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 by S.R. Bindler, produced by Kevin Morris and Bindler.
Hands on a Hardbody book by Doug Wright; Lyrics by Amanda Green; Music by Trey Anastasio and Amanda Green. Presented in special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
