A motley group of campers in search of adventure and thrills decides to hitch up their trailer to set out on a journey across the American continent. With a well-stocked cooler, windows wide open and music blaring, they are all set for an epic odyssey on wheels. Salty air that fills the lungs, enshrouding forests, electrifying cities, breathtaking mountains and plains that stretch as far as the eye can see hold the promise of an unforgettable trip.
Travel from east to west with five performers and a musician who will take you on a coast-to-coast trip in fifty minutes. To present this show, they will literally trek across Canada throughout the summer of 2018.
