Synopsis: A bored
Midwestern couple boards a cross-country train for an impulsive romantic
getaway into the American West … but no matter how far they go, they
can’t seem to get away from the fantasies, fetishes and doubts below the
surface of their marriage. Great
Western Wanderlust comically
chronicles the St. Louis-to-Los Angeles adventure of Greg and Kristi,
two thirty-somethings hiding their true wants and needs beneath their
stolid Midwestern upbringing. As their escape from suburbia turns into a
vacation from hell, their trip west also changes their relationship –
they feel the pull of freedom and adventure, and the classic American
impulse to find their true selves on the open road.
7-9 actors playing
"The strength in Eberwein's writing is his skillful blend of harsh
reality and undeniably poetic passages."
